Student Housing

The LMU offers accommodation to the participants in student residential halls of the Studentenwerk München. 

The student housing facilities are all located close to bus or subway stations with a good connection to the university, which is located near Munich’s downtown area. 

Each student will have their own private small apartment with their own small kitchen and WC/shower.

You will be provided with sheets and blankets, which can be washed at one of the laundry rooms in the building. Kitchen utensils (cutlery, cups, plate and pots) will be NOT provided. Towels will not be provided. We ask you to acquire this items according to your own personal needs.

Please note that student dorms are geared towards student needs and financial means. As such do not expect dorms to meet claims on luxury comfort and on pools.

We request that you arrive before the course starts so that you have enough time to settle in. This also gives you the opportunity to meet other course participants or have a look around Munich and get a feeling for the city.

Students with health impairment are kindly asked to inform us in the application process.


During your stay, you will be responsible in providing your own meals. During the week lunch can be purchased at one of the university’s cafeteriasfor € 3-5.

Dormitory kitchen can also be used for the preparation of meals. You will also have a fridge to store food in.

Subway, Bus, Tram

If you want to use public transportation during your stay in Munich, we recommend a monthly pass called an 'Isarcard'. For more information and prices, please consult the website of the MVV, the Munich public transportation authority.


Please remember to bring any supplies you may need for enjoying Munich’s outdoor bathing culture.  Munich is famous for its beautiful sun bathing areas and lakes. The 'Feringasee', for example, is only 15 minutes away by bike. Many other open-air swimming areas, including the 'Isar River' flow directly through Munich, and make the city a beautiful place to enjoy during the summer.
