Shared Apartment

Most students in Germany live in so-called Wohngemeinschaften (WGs) - shared flats. Often two to six people - usually a mixture of women and men - share a flat. Each person has a room of their own, and the kitchen and bathroom/WC are used by everyone.

Since many students leave Weimar in summer for semester break, they rent their rooms out to the Bauhaus Summer School for this time. These rooms are available for you.

Living together

Many participants describe life in a shared flat as a great & valuable part of their Bauhaus Summer School experience!

When living together in a shared flat, the athmoshere is mostly friendly and familiar. Flatmates usually treat each other with respect and trust. Things and tasks in the household are shared. As a temporary flatmate, you should pay attention to cleanliness and careful handling of the household items.

The absent room owners leave their furnishings and sometimes also personal belongings in their/your room - these things should also be treated with respect and care.

As living together is based on trust, the rooms are usually not lockable. Don't worry: In the past there have never been any kind of problems in this regard.


Duvet and bed linen will be provided for you. The kitchen is usually equipped with everything you need. Towels must be brought by yourself.


Most shared rooms are centrally located. Since Weimar is quite small, almost everything can be reached by walking or by bus. With your participant ID you can use the city buses free of charge.
