This city is the capital of the North Rhine-Westphalia region. It is a modern German city with a lot of cultural offerings and a perfect location for trips and excursions. Besides, it is crossed by the famous river Rhine and has a beautiful coastal walk that everyone who lives there takes advantage of. For all this and more, Düsseldorf is chosen by many students who move there every year to do Erasmus or study.

Düsseldorf is a large city, so there are many neighbourhoods in which you can find accommodation. However, due to the price and the location relative to the university, there are some areas that we consider to be better than others to find student accommodation in Düsseldorf, be it apartments or rooms. Here are some of the most chosen neighbourhoods by young people who move to study in Düsseldorf:
Stadtmitte is what the centre of Düsseldorf is called in German, so if you choose an accommodation in this area, you will be very close to all the places of interest in the city. In this area there are always open restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.
The price of a studio flat in Stadtmitte starts at € 900 per month onwards.
This residential neighbourhood is located next to the city centre. A two-room student apartment in Friedrichstadt starts at € 900 per month and upwards. Studio flats start at € 750 per month.
This area has a good environment for young people and has good connections, both with the city centre and with the university.
The most popular neighbourhood for renting rooms for students near this University is Wersten. It is far from the city centre, but it has a good connection by public transport. A room in a shared flat in Wersten starts at € 250 per month onwards, with an average of € 350.
If you prefer to search for student accommodation in an area of the city centre or nearby neighbourhoods such as Friedrichstadt, you can do that too. Just keep in mind that you have about 30 minutes of public transport to get to your faculty. Of course, the university provides transportation assistance to students, so you don't have to worry about that expense.
To find accommodation near the University of Applied Sciences we recommend doing it in neighbourhoods such as Derendorf, where a studio flat has a price ranging from € 750 onwards. Another alternative would be Pempelfort, in which a room in a shared flat has an average price of € 650 per month.
Düsseldorf universities offer the option of renting a room in university residences for the duration of the Erasmus or the course. Each residence has different characteristics, such as a laundry room, a shared kitchen, a shared bathroom and common leisure or study areas.
The number of places available in university residences is very small compared to the number of students moving to Düsseldorf, so it is often a difficult task for applications to be accepted.
