The LMU is able to offer accommodation for 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. All students are accommodated in their self-contained single apartments.

Almost every room is equipped with a small kitchen where one can prepare meals. 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 also be provided, except towels.

Please also be aware that the rooms are only of a very modest standard. Furthermore please note that we will not be able to inform you which room you will be allocated prior to your arrival in Munich.

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 arround Munich and get a feeling for the city.


During your stay, you will be responsible to providing your own meals. During the week lunch can be purchased at one of the university’s cafeterias for € 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 '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' flowing directly through Munich, ensure that the city is a beautiful place to enjoy the summer.
