Unfortunately, an application for a flat in one of the student dormitories is only possible after the enrolment at Bielefeld University. International students will therefore have to find an alternative accommodation first. More information on student accommodation can be found here
Private room offers can be found here
Both single apartments as well as rooms in flat-shares with other students are offered. In most cases the rooms are offered by private landlords. The rent for a room in Bielefeld amounts to about 180 to 300€ per month.
