This university offers to students extensive possibilities for housing: An der Schunter, APM or Langer Kamp are an example of this. The rent is usually cheapest than in a shared housing (Wohngemeinschaften). I have lived in the Schunter and every month I had to pay only €160. This included warm water, heating, and a shared kitchen and bath. The kitchen had all the facilities that can be found in every ordinary kitchen: fridge, electric cooker, cupboards, etc. There exists also a pair of washmaschines and tumble dryer.

Why?
Living in student residence allows you to meet lots of people from a variety of places. It's a good way to get to know some locals, as well as other exchange students at the same time.

Due to the variety in the structure of the rooms in Michaelishof (name of residence), your experience will depend on which part of the residence you end up. However all in all, I would say that was the best residence of TUBS; location, atmosphere, and price were all good. As for the cleanliness and space, as mentioned before, that really depends on where you are assigned.

As a student of German university u can travel by train in the Niedersachsen region for free, and public transport in Braunschweig is also for free. Its quite handy to buy a bike, as there are bike tracks all over the town, most of the time german students do not join international students comunities.

All in all my experience went quite smoothly. I did enough research to settle down and the surprises were minor and a learning experience. I would suggest to do some homework before departure, and then things should work out fine.

Study hard, play hard! (And make sure you schedule your time accordingly. Some courses require a lot of work and need to study ahead of time to do well. This doesn't come easily since there are no assignments, midterms, projects etc during the term)

Germany is located at the center to western europe and there are many many good deals/flights to many different countries. Look around and take advantage of that. The transportation in Europe is also very good to get from one country to another. Be safe, and have fun!

The surrondings of the principal area of the University are plenty of Cafés. I have visited practically all: Dialog, Viertel Nacht, Schüssel, Herr Mann's or Eusebia are an example of them. The atmosphere is very relaxing, especially with a "Becher Milchkaffe" between my hands and a pleasing conversation with friends.In the city centre you can find the biggest concentration of Italian Cafes.The decoration makes you think that you are in the vey Italia! Very cosy.

I definitely noticed a big improvement in understanding German before and after my experience. This is most apparently in how much I absorbed in lectures during the first compared to second semester. Another thing is, the more you speak, the more you pick up. If I had to do it again, I'd definitely try to speak more.
