How to find private accommodation

Finding your new home is the first step to make a good start in Germany. These tips will help you in finding a flat:

  • Time is key: start looking for a flat as soon as possible after your application at TH Rosenheim, at least 3 months before your start of studies.
  • Know the city: TH Rosenheim has four campuses in different cities (Rosenheim, Burghausen, Mühldorf am Inn,Traunstein). Check where your degree programme is located and search in/around this city. Look up the addresses and check the connection to the campus.
  • Apply for an accommodation at student residences in any case, even if you keep looking for private flat ­­­options.
  • Know what you search: do you want to share an apartment with fellow flatmates ("WG" / "Wohngemeinschaft") or do you look for an own apartment ("Wohnung"). All options have their benefits and compromises.
  • Know where to search: flats are searched and found online. You find the most common portals below. This gives you the chance to search while you're still abroad.
  • Stay proactive during your search. Use social media groups, and actively write to people who offer rooms. It's ok to ask for a virtual tour through shared flats. Suggest an appointment in person after your arrival in Germany.
  • Read the prices right: on top of the basic rent ("KM" / "Kaltmiete"), there are usually additional expenses ("NK / "Nebenkosten") such as gas, water or power. These make up your gross rent ("WM" / "Warmmiete"). Landlords usually also require a security deposit ( "KT" / "Kaution").
  • Prepare a portfolio: if you rent your own flat it is more formal. Most landlords will ask you for specific documents. You should prepare: personal introduction (CV, photo, German language certificate if possible, tenant self-disclosure), proof of steady income (payslips, monthly salary, scholarship letter, credit report, parental financial guarantee, Sperrkonto, BaföG, ...) and a copy of important documents (passport, visa, residence permit, student proof, personal liability insurance, ...). You find templates and checklists on the web.
  • Remain aware: unless you book a room in student residences, you should always try to view accommodation before signing a rental contract. Do NOT transfer money in advance (for rent, security deposit etc). Scammers attract with cheap offers and demand the deposit in advance.

If you are allocated a room, you will receive a specific offer for a room around 8 weeks before the start of your studies. This normally happens via email from the Munich Student Union. You have to confirm the reservation immediately afterwards.

The rental agreement is valid from the beginning of September until the end of February (in the winter semester) and from the beginning of March until the end of August (in the summer semester).
