Holzhausen - Live on Campus

The student village Holzhausen is located on the University’s campus. It is run by the Studierendenwerk (Student Services) Greifswald. Since winter semester 1995/96, 274 students have found perfect living conditions here, in fully furbished one and two-bed rooms.

You can request a room in the Holzhausen halls of residence on the website of the website of the  Studentenwerk Greifswald. The request must generally be sent to the Studierendenwerk.

Your Contacts at HOST are:
Susanne Redmann, accommodation queries
Ralf Klüber, caretaker of Holzhausen

Due to limited capacity and high demands, we would suggest you reserve a room with the Studierendenwerk as soon as you have decided you would like to study at HOST. To make a reservation you do not have to be enrolled or have received your Letter of Acceptance. This keeps your options open at the start of your studies.

Possible income ...

Child benefit (Not in every country.)
Here is an example from Germany.

Your parents are entitled to child benefit until their child reaches the age of 25. This means that parents receive 250 euros per child, regardless of the number of children they have. Many parents transfer the full amount to their children. A small amount, but one that is regularly credited to your student account!


As a student assistant (SHK) in various areas, you can earn between 10 and 15 hours per week. In addition to the salary, you will gain experience in the application of various research methods and knowledge of scientific publication opportunities - an advantage.

The university also cooperates with Nova Campus, and you can also find jobs outside HOST on the job exchange.
