New incoming students are assisted with finding accommodation upon arrival. Locations are proposed in Offenburg, Gengenbach and surroundings allowing students to experience German culture and lifestyle. The first option is a room in a students' residence in Offenburg. The "Studentenwerk Freiburg" (SWFR) provides, depending on availability, 188 bedrooms, whose prices range between 190 and 300 Euros. In each residence there are apartments with 2 to 5 individual dormitories, a kitchen and a bathroom. All apartments are furnished, pillows and blakets are provided but sheets, covers and dishes are not available. Nearly every apartment has a balcony, washing machines and automatic dryers are provided in the basement. Contact Mrs. Renate Litterst (SWFR) for further information.
Another possibility is private accommodation. Prices for a one or two room flat, including kitchen and bathroom, are between 250 and 300 Euros. Charges (water, heating, electricity) could be specified separately. There is usually a guarantee deposit. You can consult Mrs. Claudia Michel for detailed information.
Current students can download enrollment certificates or check their marks in the Online Services on the university's website. Important documents are consequently available whenever needed by the student.
The Coordinator of the MBA program will guide you through the steps of the application procedure and will provide you with all necessary information concerning your chosen study program. Additionally the Graduate School implements a system of honorary tutorship for admitted applicants. Senior students will help you settle in Offenburg/Gengenbach. They will pick you up at the train station, help you in getting to your room, assist with bureaucratic procedures such as registration at the foreigner's office, enrollment at the university or will simply have a coffee with you in order to give you tipps on how to spend your leisure time.
