I need accommodation in Hamburg. Can you help me find housing?
If you are admitted to Universität Hamburg, we do not automatically provide you with a room. You will need to organize your own accommodation. We urge you to start your housing search as soon as possible. Accommodation is very limited and when the semester begins, many students are competing for housing. Check out the PIASTA brochure Welcome to Universität Hamburg! First steps for new students, which contains comprehensive information about accommodation.
The Campus Center's webpages also contain a lot of helpful information on this topic.
