Affordable Places to live in Mannheim

The 400 year old Square-City with its young university region is considered to be the pop capital of Germany. The multicultural center of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region, in the heart of the industry and service metropolis, offers the ideal atmosphere to develop your identity and expand your professional skills.

This stimulating climate offers a great cultural experience and attractive living possibilities. Through the Studierendenwerk Mannheim you`ll find reasonably priced places to live. Whether you prefer an apartment or a single room in a residence hall, in a traditional working-class neighborhood or an upscale suburb, there is something for every taste and need. New Mannheimers can enjoy life in a vibrant community, making friends or meeting a future date in the shared kitchen. At the same time you can concentrate on schoolwork in the peace and silence of your own room.

Most rooms are furnished and hard wired to the university's computer center, which means that internet surfing is free. Heating, hot water and hall cleaning are also included in the price. The friendly janitor will help you with your move, repair leaks, ensure that everything is in working order and keep the walkways open and clean year round. All the houses are within cycling distance to the colleges and well linked to the vast public transportation network.
