How can I find an accommodation for the stay in Kassel?

The easiest way to find an accommodation in Kassel is to contact the Student Union (Studentenwerk) and to apply for one of their rooms or apartments. This has to be done as soon as possible because you will be put on a waiting list. The Student Union also assists you in finding an accommodation on the private market. Check the website of the Student Union for first overview.

You can also search for a room on the private market by yourself. There are some search-engines for student rooms like for example www.wg-gesucht.de or www.studenten-wg.de. In Germany it is very common to share an apartment with other students to live more convenient. Usually apartments and rooms are not furnished. That’s why you should look for a room that you can rent from an existing tenant (called “Untermiete” or “Zwischenmiete”).
