The Berlin Student Union (Studierendenwerk Berlin) manages about 40 residences with approximately 10,500 rooms all over Berlin. You can apply through their portal. In order to do so, you either have to have your student ID or, if you haven’t received one yet, your admission notice and proof that you paid the semester fees. You will find more information about the different halls, their locations, and their terms of rent at the Union’s website. If you wish to contact the Union directly, you can do so at Hardenbergstr. 34 (room 6) in 10623 Berlin or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
