Student dormitories

The "Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein" offers rooms in several dormitories. They are located on the campus as well as in the city centre. Prices per room and month vary between 230 and 300 €. You may apply for a room early, however, you will not be notified until the end of July or the beginning of August.

These student dormitories are the cheapest ones around and living there gives you the chance to easily meet colleagues and friends. You may find this very useful during the course of your academic program, as there are various group tasks to be performed.

Please refer to the Studentwerk. Here, you will find further information about the dorms and the application procedure. The more restrictions/personal wishes you have regarding the room, the lesser the chances are to get a room in the first semester. The official deadline for applications is July 15th, however, later applications are still welcome.

Please be aware of the critical room situation in Lübeck. You must expect to look for a private room. Private rooms are not located at the campus and might cost about 300-400 Euro/month.

You can choose from four different dormitories:

Internationales Studentenwohnheim

Alfstraße 5a / Fischstraße 6a/b, 23552 Lübeck (directly in the historic center)

Studentendorf Lübeck

Anschuetzstraße 11, 13, 15, 23562 Lübeck/St. Jürgen (living on campus)

Wohnheim Anschützstraße

Anschützstraße 5-7b, 23562 Lübeck/St. Jürgen (living on campus)

Wohnheim Füchtingstraße

Füchtingstraße 3 23558 Lübeck (nearby railway-station and downtown)

International tutors in the dormitories

Our international tutors in the dormitories are international students who have already been living in Schleswig-Holstein for some time. They are contact persons for all international students who live in the dormitories.

If you have questions about life in the dormitories, about daily life in Germany, if you do not know where to go, if you have special questions, have difficult experiences or don’t feel comfortable in Germany and want to get in touch with others, the international tutors will gladly help you.
