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 your search for accommodation in Berlin was not successful before your arrival, staying in a reasonably priced student hotel or backpackers' hostel (4.4.3) for a few days is recommended. From there, you can continue your search for accommodation.
