WG refers to an abbreviation of the German word, Wohngemeinschaft, namely ‘flatshare’ or ‘shared apartment’. Most students in Germany share a flat during their university years. We offer rooms in a flatshare for you to experience the German way of living as a student. The rooms are offered from local residents like students or families. Your roommates would be mixed of gender. Please notice that Living in a WG is an experience of Living as a German student. Every room has a unique style of its owner and represents their creativity. Furniture and decorations are not standardised but you live in someones home for a while. A lot of our Summer School students find this living experience very rewarding!
