Student Village

Student Village (“Studentendorf Schlachtensee”) offers private rooms with a shared bathroom/kitchen/communal area. Residents thus live in a kind of communal cluster of up to 6 students (mixed-gender), not all of whom are necessarily FU-BEST participants. Studentendorf is located in the southwest of Berlin in the leafy green district of Zehlendorf. This housing option is subject to availability and is not owned by Freie Universität Berlin.

Multiple grocery stores, restaurants, and bakeries, as well as doctors' offices are located in immediate walking distance. The center of the district of Steglitz is about 30 minutes away (by public transportation) and offers restaurants and cafés, shopping malls, and a movie theater; from Steglitz it’s another 15 minutes by metro to the center of the city. Nearby lakes Schlachtensee and Wannsee offer many opportunities for leisure activities. The commute to campus takes about 50 minutes.
