The German word “Wohngemeinschaft” (abbreviation: “WG”) refers to a living arrangement in which several tenants share an apartment. Every tenant has their own room. Common areas such as the bathroom, kitchen and living room (if existing) are shared. Sometimes there are WG options in the dormitories, too.
WGs are a great way to make friends, especially when you are in a foreign country. In a dormitory WG the tenants are responsible for the cleanliness of all common areas themselves. Please note that we cannot always fulfil requests for same-sex WGs (women or men only).
