Students studying together/ Myfrywyr sy'n astudio gyda'i gilydd

With around 30,000 students spread across 198 degree programmes, Georg-August-Universitat Göttingen is one of the largest universities in Germany. No less than 44 Nobel Prize winners have studied or taught in the city, and their names can be found on white plaques across the town. Göttingen itself is located in the very centre of Germany and whilst it doesn't have its own airport, it can be easily reached by train or car from the larger cities that do. It is approximately half an hour to Hanover, two hours to Hamburg, three hours to Berlin and four hours to Munich.
At the University, there is a high demand for accommodation. The Accommodation Service supports international students in their search for a room and serves as point of contact for questions concerning accommodation in Göttingen. They work together with the Studentenwerk (Student Services) which runs the student halls of residence, with private halls of residence and with private landlords. Moreover, they will help you find accommodation on the private housing market, for example as sub-tenants to students from Göttingen who go abroad for one or two semesters themselves.
Prior to arriving, you will be invited to an Introductory Week, which usually starts early October, to help you settle in to life in Germany and familiarise yourself with the University.
