There are many housing options in private residential homes situated around the University campus.

  1.  Mrs. Karin Jäger offers furnished/semi-furnished/unfurnished single rooms with kitchen and bath shared by 5 people. These rooms are near the University and are in great demand. Therefore they may not always be available. Students should send an email directly to Mrs. Jäger to enquire about the availability of rooms.
