Living in Dortmund and the surrounding area

We will gladly support you in your search for a suitable apartment/accommodation and help you with an initial orientation in Dortmund and the surrounding area. Please register your need as early as possible so that we can support you in the best possible way.

If you are only looking for accommodation for the first few nights or to tide you over, hotels or guesthouses are generally a good option. Temporarily and for several months, the TU Dortmund guest house can also be used as accommodation. For the search for long-term - and unfurnished - accommodation, the usual real estate portals can be used.

On the pages of the International Office you will find further information and contacts for finding accommodation in and around Dortmund. There you will find an overview of various online portals and contact options for everything to do with housing.

General information about life in Dortmund, sights, parks, gardens, etc. can be found on the website of the City of Dortmund.

Advice and support is available from Dr. Verena Schmied as well as Daniel Müller from the Staff Unit Appointment Management.
