Finding Accommodation on the Internet

You can find a room in a shared flat or an apartment for temporary accommodation (mostly they are furnitured) on several websites. The most important ones are the following:

Select "Magdeburg" in the section "read offers", then choose your preferred type of accommodation (room in a shared flat, single-room apartment etc.). Enter for how long you want to stay and finally select "short term". Start your search.

Click on "Wohnungsmarkt", choose either "WG-Angebote" or "Wohnungsangebote" from the menu and select "Magdeburg".

Click on "Wohnungen und WGs suchen", select Magdeburg, the type of accommodation you want to rent (a room in a shared flat or an apartment), the number of rooms and finally choose "nur Zwischenmiete anzeigen".

Short-term Apartment Agencies and Room Rental Agencies

Short-term apartment agencies (Mitwohnzentralen) and room rental agencies (Zimmervermittlungen) are also a good place to look for furnished accommodation for a short period of time. In general, you are required to pay a commission equivalent to 1 to 3 months' rent.

Housing Cooperatives

Such cooperatives usually rent out unfurnished apartments to their members. You are usually required to pay a four-digit membership fee (cooperative shares). As a result, the rent is lower than on the open market. Nevertheless, this is only worthwhile if you want to stay for a longer period of time (degree students). As there is an excess supply of this type of housing, it is worth asking whether it is possible to waive the membership fee.
