ACCOMMODATION
The International Office has a limited contingent of rooms, which we provide for exchange students. We strongly recommend you to apply for a room via the International Office, as finding a room on the private market is not easy in Regensburg. Therefore, you must send your application for accommodation and the acceptance of housingby E-Mail to Mrs. Hannelore Siegl-Ertl within deadline (June 1st 2017). hannelore.siegl-ertl@oth-regensburg.de


Attention!Due to capacity problems, rooms will be assigned based onthe principle “first come – first serve”. So please sendyour housing application documents as soon as possible toMrs Siegl-Ertl.Probably it is not possible to provide every exchangestudent with a room, unfortunately. In case that theInternational Office of OTH Regensburg cannot provide youwith a room, we point out that it is each student’s ownresponsibility to find an appropriate accommodation forthe time of the exchange period. Rooms are assigned afterapplication deadline and Ms Siegl-Ertl will informstudents around mid of June whether a room can be providedor not. Therefore, it makes no sense to send requests tothe International Office in terms of that matter beforemid of June! In case we cannot provide you with a room andyou still decide to come to OTH Regensburg for an exchangesemester have to take care for finding accommodation byyourself!

Assigned rooms are available from 4th of September 2017 onwards.
In case you receive a denial for accommodation around mid of June, you have to search for a room by yourself on the private market. Starting the search earlier than June usually does make sense at all as student rooms are awarded on a short-term basis.
