Special service for international students: the Servicepaket

At the moment 15 Studentenwerke offer Servicepakete for international students. The types of services on offer vary. As a rule, a Servicepaket covers accommodation, meals and health insurance - all of which are important, but which are difficult to organise from outside Germany. The Servicepaket is booked in advance before studies begin and ensures international students a smooth start to their studies.

This is particularly important for students who are staying in Germany for a limited time, but even students who want to spend their whole study time in Germany have to be able to concentrate completely on their studies, especially at the beginning.

The Servicepakete of the Studentenwerke also have other advantages: the all-inclusive-offer makes the cost of your stay in Germany calculable. The extent of the most significant expenses such as rent, food and insurance is already clear at the beginning of your studies. Some Servicepakete also include bedding, rented computers or rented bikes. In many cases leisure activities are also included in the Servicepaket.


The services in the Servicepaket usually include:

  • Accommodation
  • Meals
  • Your fee to the Student Organisation, sometimes with a Semesterticket
  • Details of information and services offered
  • Cultural events/excursion
  • Procurement of compulsory or private health insurance


In some Studentenwerke additional alternatives can be chosen:

  • Bike
  • Computer

  • Bedding
  • Sport and/or language courses
