Finding a place to live in Hamburg

Bucerius Law School will actively help you to find accommodation!

Bucerius does not have any on-campus or dormitory housing of its own. However, the campus is easily accessible by public transportation and the International Office assists you in finding suitable accommodation:

  • Student Dormitories: The International Office reserves a limited number of rooms in a private dormitory administered by the Studierendenwerk Hamburg. Dormitory housing is usually more affordable than apartment housing; unfortunately, there are not enough places to accommodate all program participants. Individuals who have been admitted to a summer program will be able to register for this housing option in May (May 14-15, 2019) on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Bucerius Housing Market: A limited number of apartments and shared rooms will be available on a sublet basis from Bucerius students leaving for their semester abroad in the summer and fall. Rent varies greatly, ranging anywhere between EUR 300 and EUR 650 per month depending on size and location.

  • In addition, Bucerius provides lists with agencies offering short-term accomodations, such as City-Wohnen.

Due to the tight situation of the housing market in Hamburg, rental prices are currently quite high and suitable accommodation for a short period of time is difficult to find. We recommend that participants search for shared flats together. All admitted participants will receive an invitation to join a Facebook group so that they can get in touch with each other.

All contact data and additional information about the housing market in Hamburg, including neighborhood descriptions and the most common abbreviations found in accommodation ads, will be provided once you have been admitted to take part in a Bucerius Summer Program.
