Lodging & Arrival Information - Berlin, Germany  



Homestays Generally every student who has booked accommodation with a host family should keep in mind that this form of accommodation differs much from a hotel or bed and breakfast. For a short while, students and host families live together as almost one family which demands consideration on both sides. Don't forget that the everyday life of the family goes on while you are there!

As everybody knows, housing in Germany can differ. Some families have their own houses with a garden whereas some live in flats right in the center of the city. The guest-rooms may have double, or single beds. Normally there is only one bathroom which is shared; towels and bed linen are provided by the family. Breakfast is included in the host family accommodation.

The size of the family is also variable. Some families are very young without children; some are older with children who go to school or university; and, in some cases, students can also choose "families" who consist of only one person, if they seem to be the ideal accommodation possibility. It is always possible to invite friends to the host family, as long as the host family agrees to this and as long as they do not stay overnight. This is also valid for other forms of accommodation such bed and breakfast.

Shared Apartments Bed & Breakfast Students are housed in shared apartments inhabited by one or more Germans. Each student has a single room in the apartment and the German hosts prepare breakfast for you, lunch and dinner are self catering; a good option if youŽd like some service from your German host but donŽt want to be confined by having to integrate into their everyday life.

Student Apartments: Apartment share is a popular form of living among Germans, especially in bigger cities. You have a single room in an apartment you share with one or more Germans and take care of all meals yourself. The Germans are between 20 and 40, either students at Berlin universities or professionals. Often you develop close contacts with the Germans in your apartment.

Hotel reservations can be made for students by request.
