4.4 Finding accommodation in Berlin

It is important for prospective students to find accommodation in Berlin as quickly as possible, because all other steps in connection with matriculation depend on having an address and the associated registration document (5.1.1).

If the search for accommodation in Berlin was not successful before arrival, staying in a student hotel or backpackers' hostel (4.4.3) for a few days at a reasonable price is recommended. From there the search for accommodation can be continued.
