Accommodation for students and trainees

University residence

Housing reserved for UNI students

The university residences offer accommodation reserved for students enrolled at the University of Luxembourg.

To qualify for accommodation, students must be enrolled in a full-time Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD course. Students enrolled for a semester at the University of Luxembourg as part of an exchange or as a ‘free mover’ may also apply for accommodation.

The Uni has more than thirty residences located throughout the country, close to university campuses. It provides more than 1,000 accommodation units for its students.

Accommodation is wide ranging. A student can rent a furnished 15 m2 room with shared or private kitchen and bathroom facilities for a small fee. A single student can also rent a self-contained studio of 24 m2, while a couple can rent accommodation of up to 35 m2.

The halls of residence offer a cleaning service for the common areas. A hoover is also available to students.

Prices and conditions for university residences

The University of Luxembourg offers lease contracts of 5 to 7 months. The lease can be extended if you re-register at the Uni. However, the maximum stay cannot exceed the duration of your studies.

Given the shortage of university accommodation and the high demand (6,700 students at the Uni), the maximum rental period is limited to the normal duration of studies:

  • 36 months for a bachelor’s degree
  • 24 months for a master’s degree
  • 24 months’ rent for a doctorate, even though the duration of studies for a doctoral student is 48 months.

The rates are very attractive and the accommodation is furnished. Prices range from €400 to over €1,000 per month. Rents include all utilities, such as water, electricity, gas, heating and internet.

A deposit is required before you move in, as is the case for all rented accommodation. This is equivalent to one month’s rent and must be paid by bank transfer. A security deposit must also be paid. This is €350 for rooms and €500 for studios.

It is compulsory to take out home insurance with an approved insurance company in Luxembourg. The University of Luxembourg offers comprehensive home insurance. This is taken out for a period of one year, from September to September. It covers various risks such as fire, water damage, glass breakage and personal liability. Students can take out the policy directly online, on the website.

Applications for university accommodation can be made online, directly on the Université de Luxembourg website. However, the application is only definitive once the student has paid the deposit. Accommodation is allocated on the basis of the applicant’s file by the Service des études et de la vie étudiante (SEVE).

Student and trainee accommodation

Student accommodation is designed for young people wishing to live temporarily in Luxembourg, as part of their school or university course or as a summer job.

Some student accommodation is reserved for trainees of all nationalities.

Furnished and adapted to student life, this type of accommodation is relatively rare in Luxembourg and prices vary greatly from one residence to another.

Created in 2005, “Wunnraum Fir Stagiairen” is a reception and accommodation service for trainees of all nationalities. The association has four residences and houses across Luxembourg, with between 2 and 17 rooms. Each room is furnished and has internet access. Prices vary according to location, but are much lower than a standard furnished rental, at between 400 and 750 euros.

To take advantage of a room in one of the houses run by the reception and accommodation service, trainees must submit a file including :
