Host family
Continuing the immersion in the German language by staying with a host family is the surest way for students to progress quickly. Situated between 15 and 30 minutes by public transport from the school, the families propose a single room and the sharing of the common rooms of the house. You have a choice between breakfast only, half board or full board being provided.
 
Residence
The residence is situated in an 8-storey building, 20 minutes by tram from the city centre. By accommodating both international students and German university students, this accommodation structure favours encounters and language exchanges and established a very convivial atmosphere. Each bedroom has a private bathroom. A well-equipped shared kitchen is available for use by all of the residents on each floor of the building.
Check-in time: Sundays at 6 pm.

Shared apartments
As the option of a shared apartment is very popular in Germany, the school proposes bedrooms in apartments. In a traditional WG (Wohngemeinschaft), the student stays in a single furnished room and shares the apartment with local inhabitants (a single person or a couple). They therefore share the living room, bathroom and kitchen with the regular residents. Shared accommodation among students is quite rare and is generally only available during the university holiday period.
