Housing

In the last five years, rental prices have been rising by more than 40% in both cities Potsdam and Berlin. To give you a rough orientation:

- furnished room in a shared apartment from € 450

- furnished studio from € 550

- furnished two room flat from € 750 (for max. 3 persons)

- furnished three room flat from € 900 (for families of 4+)

We recommend that you deal with accommodations in a timely manner and that you also consider accommodation in the surroundings of Potsdam. Please contact us at early on so that we can support you in this matter!

If you rent an apartment or a room, you must pay a rental deposit to your landlord. A deposit typically amounts to between two and three months' rent.

For stays of more than 3 months, you have to register with the local authorities. For the registration, you need a form called "Wohnungsgeberbestaetigung" that has to be completed and signed by your landlord.
