Student halls of residence
Student halls of residence usually offer affordable accommodation for students. The university does not own these halls of residence. Most are run by the Munich Student Union, with over 10,000 rooms available. Places at these halls are highly sought-after, with long waiting lists – so students are advised to apply early!
Important for exchange students
Please note: If you come to our university through an exchange program, you cannot on your own apply for a room in the Student Union halls of residence – only for other halls of residence. Details: Accommodation for exchange students
Affordable rooms: The Munich Student Union runs halls of residence at the three large TUM campuses. This accommodation is highly sought after, so students will need to apply early.
