The Studentenwerk offers accommodation in halls of residence in both Würzburg and Schweinfurt. The average rent for a room is € 250–350 per month. Students are responsible for applying for a room themselves. For more information, please see

For some preliminary insights into life in student halls of residence, take a look at the illustrated dictionary published by the German National Association for Student Affairs (Deutsches Studentenwerk, DSW).

Be sure to organise your accommodation early on, as there are only a limited number of rooms available.
