Finding student accommodation in Luxembourg

Are you going to continue your studies in Luxembourg, or have you had the opportunity to secure an internship with a European institution or a company in Luxembourg? Congratulations! All that remains is to find accommodation for the duration of your internship or studies.

University residences in Luxembourg

Housing reserved for UNI students

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 program. Students enrolled for a semester at the University of Luxembourg as part of an exchange program or as a "free mover" can also apply for accommodation.

UNI halls of residence

Uni has over thirty residences located throughout the country, close to university campuses. More than 1,000 residences are available to students.

Accommodation is very varied. 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 university residences offer a cleaning service for common areas. A vacuum cleaner is also available for students.

University residence rates and conditions

The University of Luxembourg offers lease contracts of 5 to 7 months. Lease extensions are possible in the event of re-registration 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 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' rental for a doctorate, even if the duration of studies for a doctoral student is 48 months.

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

Student tenants are required to pay a deposit before moving in ,as is the case for all rental accommodation. This is equivalent to one month's rent and must be paid by bank transfer. A security deposit is also required. This is 350€ for rooms and 500€ for studios.

It is compulsory to take out home insurance with a licensed insurance company in Luxembourg. The University of Luxembourg offers a multi-risk home insurance policy. 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 subscribe directly online, on the Allia.lu website.

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

Accommodation for students and trainees in Luxembourg

Not lucky enough to have university accommodation? Finding temporary accommodation for students or trainees can be complicated. Adverts posted on social networks can sometimes be malicious, so keep a close eye on them.

Don't hesitate to use your network. Short-term accommodation offers can be found by word of mouth. Not all offers are necessarily externalized.

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

Some student residences are reserved for trainees of all nationalities. Furnished and adapted to student life, these accommodations are relatively rare in Luxembourg, and prices vary widely from one residence to another.

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

To take advantage of a room in the reception and accommodation service houses, the trainee must provide a file including :
