After having decided to study in Essen, Duisburg, Mülheim, or Bottrop, you probably still have one important question: Where can I find reasonably priced accommodation that isn't too far away from campus?

The Studierendenwerk Essen-Duisburg offers more than 2.500 rooms in student residences in three cities of the Ruhr area. Tenants can look forward to an "all-inclusive price": In contrast to the regular housing market, we already include costs for electricity, water, heating, and the internet access in our rent, most of the time. Additional payments are not necessary.

Whether you prefer a room in a shared flat, an own apartment or a single room with a shared kitchen – as a student of the University of Duisburg-Essen, the Folkwang University of the Arts or the Hochschule Ruhr West you can choose from many different and reasonably priced rooms which are close to your campus.
