BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg is a university with three locations on which numerous student dormitories are provided. Students can choose between different room types.
In Germany it is also very common for students to live alone or with friends. If three or more people share an apartment together, then in Germany that is called a "WG" (Wohngemeinschaft, or "shared flat").
Try to plan your arrival in Cottbus so that you do not arrive late in the evening, on a Sunday, or on a holiday. We recommend this due to the fact that many stores do not stay open particularly late (closing time around 8 p.m.) and they, along with city administration offices, are closed on Sundays and holidays.
In case you do end up arriving a day too early or do not have an accommodation organised ahead of your arrival, you have the following accommodation options.
