Accommodation in Wismar
There are two very inexpensive options for housing in Wismar.
Studentenwerk Rostock (Student Services Rostock) offers furnished rooms in several modernly furnished residential homes in Wismar. There, you share kitchen and bathroom facilities with other students. These rooms have a one-semester rent contract. For many international students, this is the first and easiest choice. You can make arrangements prior to your arrival. Simply contact the Studierendenwerk Rostock-Wismar.
Shared apartments – Wohngemeinschaften (WGs)
Often students share a flat and form a so-called Wohngemeinschaft, or WG (shared apartments). The rent for each flatmate is very reasonable. On several webpages you can find offers for available rooms (also furnished). If you are not able to arrange for housing until after your arrival, the staff of the International Office will be glad to assist you. Monthly rent in a WG can range from 170 to 230 euros. Sometimes extra fees are charged for electricity, heating, etc. Make sure to ask about these in advance.
