With its own accommodation, the university makes sure that the students get a place to live in Berlin upon arrival without having to deal with a stress of apartment searching.

All the students staying in BAU International’s Berlin accommodation enjoy the support of the on-site accommodation office that helps them start their stay in Berlin. The accommodation office manages all rental proceedings, advises on maintenance and cleaning services, and is available to handle any need for repair that may arise in the apartments. In addition to the office’s support, the students also enjoy the services of a student café that is open every afternoon, serving drinks and snacks. Here, BAU International’s Berlin students meet, get to know each other, prepare collaborative projects and assignments for their courses, and share their experiences in the university and around Berlin.
