For the stay in Cologne we can arrange a guest room in accommodation with a private person on request. This can be a family, a couple, a single person, working or studying, younger or older. This gives you the opportunity to really get to know Cologne life and our city while improving your German. Of course, the kitchen and the bathroom can also be used in the apartment, usually also the washing machine. WLAN, bed linen and towels are also available.
Prices depend on location and condition of the apartment, as well as offer, size and equipment. In some accommodations you can also book meals (breakfast 60,- € / with half board 150,- € per week additionally).
Our shared rooms are usually located near the school, max. 45 minutes from the school by public transport. Of course we try to accommodate our students as close to the school as possible.
Sometimes it can be difficult to find suitable accommodation at short notice. We therefore recommend that you book your accommodation well in advance.
We always try to take special requests into account, but we recommend that you are open to new ideas and willing to compromise.
For those who prefer to live together with other tandem students, we can offer a room or a small apartment in our tandem flat on the 3rd floor of the school building, if available.
The four bright and quiet single rooms (14 - 17 m2) have a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom with two showers, a toilet and a balcony. The two apartments (18 and 30 m2) are also fully furnished and have a kitchenette as well as their own bathroom. Two washing machines are available in the basement for all residents of the TANDEM-WG ( TANDEM SHARED FLAT).
All rooms have free internet access via WLAN. The entire apartment is a non-smoking apartment. Smoking is only allowed on the balcony!
In most cases, a key deposit is required which will be refunded after departure.
