How to find accommodation
It’s not easy to find a place to live in Munich – but it’s not impossible either! The Technical University of Munich (TUM) supports students and staff in their search for accommodation, providing personal advice, in-house listings and useful information to ensure that you can quickly find a place to call your own.

Useful tips – like how to apply for an advertised apartment, how to contact the property owner/manager, how to master German bureaucracy (registry Residence Registration Office) and how to extend a visa, permit of stay, etc. Please register because places are limited.
