The Studierendenwerk Ulm lease rooms in several residential homes in Ulm. Rooms are usually rented out for at least one semester (6 months). There are bus connections to all universities and the city centre from all residential homes. The best time to submit the application is around 3 months before your intended arrival. Moving in is only possible from Monday to Friday, i.e. if you arrive on a Friday afternoon, a Saturday or a Sunday, you will have to wait until Monday morning. The rooms of the student residences are mostly inhabited until the last day of the contract period. Therefore, you often cannot move in until the first day of your contract. Possibilities to bypass these times can be found here.
