On the day of your arrival you will be required to pay a 50 EURO deposit for the room, which will be paid back to you at the end of the month. The program fee covers the language course and all excursions.
Even for a one-month stay in Munich you are required to have valid health insurance. For participants from the European Union or from countries with which Germany has a bilateral social insurance agreement, we recommend that you to obtain an E 111 form in your own country. For more detailed information, contact an insurance agency in your country.
For participants who are not from the European Union we recommend the Foreign Health Insurance of the Hanse Merkur.
Living in the Studentenstadt
Each participant is provided with a single room in the “student city”, Studentenstadt Freimann. With about 2,400 residents in 14 buildings, the Studentenstadt is the largest student housing complex in Germany. Situated on the north end of the English Garden (one of the largest urban parks in the world!), the Studentenstadt offers not only plenty of options for sport and leisure, restaurants and hangouts, but also nearness to a subway line that will take you to the city center in just 10 minutes.
Each single room has access to a large communal kitchen and a shared bathroom. Bedding is provided, but we ask that you bring your own bath towel and dishware. Washing machines are available in every building. If you choose to reserve a room in the Studentenstadt, it will be made available to you from August 1 until your departure date on August 27. Should you have an alternative housing option in Munich, please inform us in advance. Note that a 50 EURO deposit for the room will be collected upon your arrival. This deposit will be returned to you on your date of departure.
While you are in Munich you are responsible for your own meal schedule. You can eat lunch at either the cafeteria or the Mensa at the university for about 3 EURO. Of course you can also take advantage of the kitchens in the Studentenstadt or try out the various restaurants in the city.
