Finding adequate and affordable accommodation in Germany is, as in most countries, pretty difficult and often time-consuming. Especially in a small student town like Lüneburg the housing market is tight; this holds true particularly for furnished and temporary accommodation. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you look for accommodation as soon as you know that you will be coming to Lüneburg.
Leuphana University supports international students in finding a suitable place to live during their study abroad period. Upon request, the University’s Housing Service, which is affiliated to the International Office, prearranges accommodation for international students.
In Lüneburg there are various housing options available for students. The most popular one is to share an apartment. However, for those who prefer to live on their own, a single apartment might be the right option. Exchange students may also opt to live with a host family.
