An Apartment of Your Own

  You are here: Tuebingen » Living Here » Accommodations » Finding a Home » An Apartment of Your Own

If you prefer to live on your own, you will have to spend a little bit more. Even though prices in Tuebingen are relatively high for German standards, flats are still affordable. However, be aware that most flats are unfurnished (except for the kitchen), so you will incur in some extra expenses in furnishing your home.

Keep in mind that you are responsible for managing everything on your own. So you might consider a membership of the Deutscher Mieterbund, an association that helps tenants with any problem related to rental contracts, handing over the apartment at the beginning or end of the contract,additional expenses, etc.

Also bear in mind: not all landlords speak English and your contract as well as all other communication regarding your flat will be in German. It is often helpful to bring a German colleague when you go to view an apartment - they can translate for you and know what questions to ask.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your Personal Support.
