How to find a flat? First of all: Check the internet:
It is definitely not easy to find a flat in Aachen, but this problem exists in most student cities!
Keep your head up, we have never seen an international student sleeping on the street yet. Prestep is an alternative if you need a room, and we have used it, it’s awesome. They rent rooms on a daily basis, up to 6 months. Just call (+49 241 16069069) or write an email for more information, they are friendly and know how to help you.
The AStA has a webpage with general information about finding accommodation, how to deal with problems concerning landlords and more.
INCAS, the International Center for Aachen students, is an international student’s club. They have special service hours to help international students find accommodation in Aachen. The International Office supports this service by students for students and works closely together with them. Please find further information on their website.
Studierendenwerk Aachen (Student Services Aachen) runs dormitories for students from RWTH Aachen and FH Aachen. If you missed to apply for one of the quota rooms or did not get an offer, you can still apply online for a room run by the Student Services. You can find all information on their website.
