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 start looking in good time.
Most rooms and flats are rented out unfurnished. There are many online services, but most landlords/flatmates want to meet you in person before renting out their flat/room. We also highly recommend to look at a room/flat first (and also talk to the landlord/prospective flatmates in person) before reaching a binding agreement.
