Final comments
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.

The dorm was quite good, one small room with internet access but shared kitchen, living room and bathroom. Sometimes there were problems with too loud or messy housemates, or too many loud parties.....
