Accommodation and living in Oldenburg
For many new students, life at university begins with searching for accommodation.
There are many different ways of finding accommodation at the University of Oldenburg.
The Student Service Organisation (Studentenwerk) offers places in student accommodation either close to the campus or around the city. Types of accommodation available include individual apartments, rooms in double apartments or shared accommodation.

It is worth checking notice boards at the University for accommodation offers. You can also post your own advertisement: "Suche Zimmer oder Wohnung...".
There is also a notice board for accommodation on Stud.IP (only accessible via a university account)
On Tuesdays and Saturdays, you can find accommodation vacancies advertised in the NWZ newspaper.
The events magazine Mox (published fortnightly) also lists accommodation vacancies in its classified section.
Another option is housing associations (Wohnungsbaugesellschaften) and service agencies. A few of them are mentioned here.
In addition to these local organisations, you can also find a number of websites which have accommodation offers across the country and are targeted towards students.
