Possibility of finding part-time employment

Accommodation

As in all popular university cities in Germany, accommodation is in high demand and is not easy to find in Münster – but it’s not impossible either!

The university (International Office for students, WWU Graduate Centre for doctoral candidates) will offer advice. Please also note that the University of Münster (just like most public German universities) does not have its own student halls of residence.
