Apply for support

The Leuphana Accommodation Service has a limited number of furnished rooms in student residences and private flats which are rented exclusively to international students who are studying at Leuphana for at least one semester up to a year and who participate in the language and orientation programme before the start of the semester. In addition, the Accommodation Service provides contacts to people who rent furnished rooms, such as Leuphana students going abroad or private landlords*.

How to apply

  1. Get information about the rooms provided by the Leuphana Accommodation Service (see below).
  2. If you apply for studies via our applicant portal, you get the application form for the Accommodation Service in the part "Further Information". Complete the application form, save it and send a scan as soon as possible. (Important: The application does not imply a room reservation) Application deadlines are 15 January for the summer term and 15 July for the winter term. If you do not apply via the applicant portal or if you miss the application deadline, ask for the application form via e-mail.
  3. You will receive a confirmation of receipt within a week (please also check your spam folder).
  4. If the application was submitted in time, exchange students receive a guaranteed room offer. Support will also be provided in the case of late applications, but without guarantee of a room offer. Applications are handled on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and with regard to personal preferences. You will get a room offer or a status report by e-mail within our main planning period (summer term: 1 Dec - 31 Jan; winter term: 1 June - 31 July).

Please keep in mind:
Even if you apply for support by Leuphana Accommodation Service, we recommend also trying to find accommodation on your own. This applies especially to international students or scholars who will stay in Lüneburg for more than a year. In this case, an unfurnished apartment might be a cheaper and suitable option. If you find accommodation on your own, please inform us by e-mail.

Room offers

There are two options for the room offer:

  1. You get an offer for aroom provided by the Accommodation Service (e-mail with a pdf-file): Please inform the Accommodation Service by e-mail within 3 days if you accept the room offer or not. If you accept, the room will be reserved for you and you will get a preliminary contract including the terms of payment. The reservation is confirmed upon receipt of payment.
  2. You get a proposal for a room provided by a private landlord (text mail only): Get in touch with the landlord within 3 days. The arrangement will be between you and the landlord only. This also applies to the rental contract. The Leuphana Accommodation Service acts as an intermediary only, but can provide a sample rental contract and help organising the hand-over of keys. In case the room has already been rented to another person, before you were able to contact the landlord, you will get a new proposal.

If you do not accept the offer, we cannot guarantee that you will get a second one – although you will receive support for finding accommodation on your own.
