Scholarship information To be announced.
Dormitory information There is a very high demand for accommodation in Munich. The International Office of TUM only has a limited number of rooms allocated by the "Studentenwerk" (Munich based Student Association) and therefore can only offer accommodation to one in nine exchange students. However, we try to send students coming under the “TUMexchange” program at least one room offer. In case we can offer a room to these students, they will automatically be placed on a list to receive a room offer, unless they specifically request that they do not want to live in student accommodation facilities. In case we cannot offer a room due to high demand, we will send out an email in July (for winter term). The rooms we offer are typically single or double bedroom apartments with kitchenettes and private bathrooms or shared double rooms with community showers and kitchens. Internet access is currently available at all student accommodation. Meals are not provided, but there are student cafeterias on all 3 campuses where lunch is served at very reasonable prices.
