Why? Because it is the best way to meet new people
Personal comments:
I think that the accomodation is quite good in this university, perhaps not very clean, but that depends on the own students. There are several kinds of residence, in my case, i had to do interviews in order to be "accepted" in a student appartment.

STUDENT LIFE

Personal social experience
Activities
KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
So-so.
Did not get involved.
Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Activities, Travel: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
If you come to Darmstadt, you maybe like to visite some interesting architectural buildings like Mathildenhoehe, or "Waldspiral" made by Hundert Wasser. If you want to spend some hours in a nice coffe, i recomend you to go to Café Chaos, Kuk or Central Station. At night i will suggest you to drive to Heilderberg (30 min.) or Frankfurt (15 min.), Darmstadt is a little boring.

Personal comments:
English was the medium of instruction for our Master program. We Indians are more or less fluent in English and hence this University can be great place to study. The German language is needed for day to day life in and around the city.
