Accommodation is guaranteed for exchange students as long as they apply before the deadline. The university does not own housing facilities itself, but rents apartments and rooms from the city and private housing companies. Foreign students apply for housing with the university system through the university's central administration services. There is a housing coordinator who helps with this process.
If you decide not to live in these accommodations, you will be responsible for your own housing arrangements.
