Students in Lüneburg live either in halls of residence, which are located on or close to the campus or in the city centre, or in private rooms or apartments. While only students live in the halls of residence, students also live together with working people in the private apartments. Both in the halls of residence and in private apartments, there are usually mixed-gender flat-sharing communities (WGs), in which the kitchen and bathroom are shared, but each flatmate has its own bedroom. Shared rooms are unusual in Germany, except for a short stay in a youth hostel. Students who prefer to live alone, opt for a single apartment.
