LIVING IN TÜBINGEN



For international researchers, the Welcome Center at Tübingen University offers service and support preparing your stay in Tübingen and practical assistance in all non-academic matters. Please get registered at the earliest possible date.


For long-term apartments, please check wg-gesucht.de
In addition, please check airbnb for availabilites.


On a side note: KM stands for Kaltmiete = "cold rent". The extra costs are for warm water and heating, which will make it a "warm rent". And unfortunately, you cannot escape the parking lot if it is offered.
Please consider twice the cold rent for a deposit.
For electricity, please calculate an additional 50 EUR per month and person;
for telephone/ internet take 30 EUR per month into account.
If you have a laptop or a computer at home, please consider another 20 EUR per month for the accessibility of the German public service broadcast GEZ (radio and television).
A monthly bus ticket within Tübingen is for 60 EUR (however, reductions may apply),
and 7 to 10 EUR monthly fees apply for your bank account.
Please note that apartments in Germany usually are not furnished (apart from the kitchen); the nearest IKEA is located in Sindelfingen (and they certainly offer a delivery service).
Also, a third party liability insurance is strongly recommended, and many rental agreements actually require it.
