The Office of International Affairs advises incoming exchange students to apply for accommodation in the mixed dormitories of the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart. Most of the dormitories are located on the campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. All dormitories can be easily reached within 20 min. from the city centre campus by S-Bahn (commuter train). The single bedrooms are equipped with a table, bed, chair, wardrobe/closet, bookshelf and a washbasin. There is a common kitchen for all the members of an apartment or of a floor. You must bring your own dishes with you or buy them in Germany. Bed linen and coverlets can be purchased in the janitor's office for EUR 45.
Please note that the Office of International Affairs does not have any influence on the allocation of dormitories.
German students usually rent private apartments and share them with other students (so called Wohngemeinschaften, or WGs). Each WG tenant has his/her own room. Kitchen, bath room/shower/toilet are shared with the other flatmates. Rooms in shared apartments (WGs) are attractive because they may be cheaper and offer more opportunities to meet other people. However, it is also more difficult to find private accommodation through websites like www.wg-gesucht.de www.studenten-wg.de and www.wg-welt.de
