Shared Flats

We advise our students to let us book them in a hotel for the first couple of nights. This allows you to meet other students to share the flat with, and a chance to view the flat.

Upon selecting a flat you will sign a contract with the landlord directly. Usually such contracts include a deposit payment of one month's rent that the owner of the apartment will keep in case of any damage until the last day of your stay.

The flats are fully furnished, including TV, telephone, fridge, stove, washing machine and air condition. A telephone line can normally be used to connect computers or lab tops.

When checking on flats, we focus especially on functionality, safety and hygiene and get the best & most reasonably priced accommodation. These apartments fulfill local quality standards.

Some flats are in walking distance, others in about 5 to 10 minutes drive. The most common way to reach from your apartment to the school is by taxi as they are available everywhere and the fares are very low.
