In Berlin, student halls of residence or dormitories are run mainly by the Studentenwerk, a student welfare organization, rather than by the universities. Halls of residence (Wohnheime) are located in various parts of the city and vary in standard and price from € 150 to € 380 per month.
In addition, the brochure "Budenzauber", issued by the Studentenwerk, has information on private rooms, flats and apartments for students in Berlin and is also available for download. You will find more information on halls of residence and other housing opportunities as well as information on rent and waiting lists on the website of the Studentenwerk.
Studentendorf owns student villages in Berlin Schlachtensee as well as in Berlin Adlershof. There you have the opportunity to rent a room for one month, three months or the whole period of your studies.
