Cozy and affordable student apartments
For students, the beginning of their studies at UMCH also marks the start of a new and exciting phase in their lives. For most of them, this is also connected with a move. Hamburg offers you countless exciting opportunities to spend your free time and meet new people. In order to save you the hassle of looking for an apartment and a bulk purchase in a furniture store, UMCH cooperates with the student residences Uninest, THE FIZZ and Urban Living. These offer university students the opportunity to live in fully furnished and modern apartments at reasonable prices during their medical studies in Hamburg. The online accommodation platform HousingAnywhere, which specializes in finding rooms and apartments for students, is also one of UMCH’s cooperation partners.
The comfortable and well-equipped student apartments of Uninest are located in the Wandsbek district of Hamburg. At the “Navale” location you will live in one of 328 studios. You can choose flexibly between different types of studios, selecting the one that suits you best.
The modern Uninest building complex, in which the studios are located, is only about 100 meters away from the Wandsbeker Chaussee S/U-Bahn station. A large shopping center and the Wandsbeker Markstraße shopping mile are also in the immediate vicinity.
Uninest’s studios are all fully equipped – including kitchenette and private bathroom with shower. There are also several well-equipped common rooms with foosball tables, bar and lounge. Here students can enjoy their free time and meet exciting new people as well as fellow students.
The student apartments of THE FIZZ are excellently equipped and stylishly furbished. UMCH students can book the studios – as well as viewing appointments – conveniently from home. The usual service charge is waived for the first 50 UMCH students who move into THE FIZZ. Therefore, please state when booking that you are studying at UMCH.
The brand-new location in Altona is THE FIZZ’s largest to date. The apartment complex has a spacious courtyard and air-conditioned community areas, such as study rooms, a roof terrace, a lobby and a movie lounge. Here you will have plenty of opportunities to prepare for exams or forget the demanding everyday university life for a while.
In the immediate vicinity of the residence hall there are numerous shopping facilities, restaurants as well as park and sports facilities. There is even a supermarket on the ground floor of the building, so long walks with full shopping bags belong to the past. In addition, the S-Bahn station Holstenstraße can be reached by foot in less than five minutes.
Urban Living is a modern residential complex with various apartment types in Hamburg’s Ottensen district – not far from UMCH. Ottensen has a lot to offer in terms of culture as well as numerous restaurants, pubs and stores, and is becoming an increasingly popular residential area. Furthermore, the river Elbe and the Elbe beach are not far away from the brand-new building complex.
The size of the apartments is – depending on the type – between 20 and 43 m². The apartments are all high-quality and modernly furnished and have their own kitchen and bathroom. Furthermore, most of the apartments have a balcony or (roof) terrace. Other advantages of the residential complex include features such as a smartphone app, regular community events including catering, apartment cleaning and a package acceptance service.
Urban Living also provides for sufficient community rooms. For example, you can socialize with your neighbors on a large common terrace, in the event kitchen, on the sports field or in the fitness room of the complex. Appointments for viewing the apartments can be booked conveniently from home via the residence’s website.
HousingAnywhere cooperates with universities and other institutions worldwide to help students find a room or apartment easily and safely. Students can contact private landlords, host families or exchange students who have unused housing space available.
A big difference to other online accommodation platforms is the particularly secure booking system of HousingAnywhere. As a tenant, you pay the first monthly rent to the platform itself. Only 48 hours after you move in, HousingAnywhere transfers the rent to the respective advertiser. If the room does not meet the specifications, you will be refunded the full cost.
UMCH students receive VIP status at HousingAnywhere. Simply fill out the priority access application form. After appropriate verification you will receive a badge, which will increase your chances of being accepted as a tenant many times over. In addition, as a UMCH student at HousingAnywhere you will enjoy advantages such as personal support through live chat, WhatsApp and more.
More tips on finding a room or flat
In addition to our partner residences, there are many other possibilities to find suitable student accommodation in Hamburg.
We would like to introduce you to some of them here, in order to simplify and speed up your search for accommodation.
WG-Gesucht is probably the best known and most popular portal in Germany when it comes to finding a room in a shared flat. Here you will find a large number of free rooms in shared flats as well as a wide range of advertisements for entire apartments. You can use a variety of filters to find exactly what you are looking for.
WG-Suche strongly resembles WG-Gesucht in concept. However, the slightly less well-known platform has the advantage of a more intuitive and contemporary user interface. The fact that the site has fewer users also means that you will have fewer competitors for your potential dream room, increasing your chances of being able to move into it.
