Private Housing

There are a lot of ways to find private housing in Ulm and Neu-Ulm. However, you should bear in mind that shortly before the semester starts, it will be more difficult to find a room. Therefore, you better take a look in advance.
Most rooms and apartments are offered unfurnished. There are many online services, but most landlords/flatmates want to meet you in person before making a contract. We also highly recommend to look at a room or an apartment first (and also talk to the landlord personally) before reaching a binding agreement.
