Final comments
The best thing to learn the language and get in contact with people is -having a job, e.g. in a restaurant -joining travels, weekend trips like skiing -initiaton of parties and events, e.g. "Running dinner": the students of one semster cook (in teams)for the first semester and foreign students to get to know each other!

Housing
Type of housing: Student hotel
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I prefer living in a private apartment than a student hotel/residence because it has more "atmosphere" and individuality

Personal comments
The residence of the university was (in my opinion) not according to a European standard! That's why I choose the student hotel that was more expensive but much more comfortable and safe!
