Private Accommodations

You are welcome to make your own living arrangements for the duration of the summer course program. We have put together a list of links for you that might help in your search for a room in a shared apartment or Wohngemeinschaft (abbreviated as “WG”) or in a hostel.

Private Hosts

We have a limited number of rooms in private residences available for participants in the “Berlin at its best - Learn the Language, Experience the Culture” and “Authors in Berlin – Berlin Authors: Literature Course” programs.

  • € 500,- for a single room, breakfast included

Our private hosts usually live alone. Their apartments are not necessarily close to Freie Universität, but there is never more than a 50-minute commute to the university.
We can only make reservations for these rooms during the program period, starting with the first day (arrival) of the program and ending with the last day (departure). If you wish to make arrangements for before or after the summer course, please contact your host directly.
