Most students in Germany leave their hometown for the study and need a new place to live. For these students there is an other option that you should know. Many of students share a flat with other students. This is called a "Wohngemeinschaft" (WG). Every person has their own room and roommates share a bathroom and kitchen and some time also a living room. As a student, a shared apartment is more affordable than having your own flat. The price for a room in a Wohngemeinschaft may vary between 200 and 350 €. If you also want to experience life in a typical Wohngemeinschaft with German students, you may check out :
