Personal comments
The campus where I was living, was the cheapest one and there were mainly exchange students and other foreigners. I know there would have been nicer places to live, but on the other hand it was propably the best place to get to become acquainted with so many other students.

Housing
Type of housing: Studentwohnheim
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Because in Siegen, apartments are very cheap and in the middle of the city. The student's house was pretty far away from everything and the public transports are not very good

For me it was a truly international and cheap experience. Siegen is not as expensive as Munich or Frankfurt and is full of international students

The university had good parties every 2-3 weeks. You should not miss the university summer party. The new movie place is also worth visiting, it has as well nice bars and cafes. Other nice bars/cafes: Kutscherhaus, Muckefuk, Flocke, Orlando

The city and also the university are not too big so you can get fast a good overview. You can have many various courses at the university and normally there is no problems with getting to the courses. In addition, the university arranges very good German courses for foreigners. At the university you have also plenty of possibilities for sports, hobbies and parties.

From Siegen it is relatively short to Köln, Frankfurt and Koblenz. The way to other bigger German towns is also not impossible. I also used the possibility for interrailing, because from Germany it is much faster to go to Southern Europe than from Finland.. And if you want to meet lots of other exchange students in Siegen, you should live in Buerbach.
