Housing in Jena

Housing market

Jena is a lively student city. Especially at the start of a new semester, rooms and apartments suitable for students are in high demand. There are many types of housing: whether a 5-person shared apartment, a room in a student housing complex of the Studierendenwerk Thüringen or your own rented apartment - the choice is yours! In addition to researching on the internet, suitable ways to look for accommodation are the notices on the notice boards of the Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena and the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. Being there in person can be helpful from many points of view: many WGs like to meet potential flatmates in person. So: make appointments and combine that with a wonderful day in Jena!
