|Accommodation||Students are typically placed in furnished single rooms in student flats (shared apartments) belonging to Studentenwerk Osnabrück. Flats are scattered around the city (locations/descriptions for accommodation); German universities typically do not have Residence Halls such as those found on university campuses in the U.S.|
In Osnabrück, students may purchase some meals from four student diners and eight student cafeterias at government-subsidized rates. All flats have kitchen facilities, where students make meals on their own.
Mode of transportation: Students arrange their own transportation to/from the Chicago O'Hare airport. Arrive at least 3 hours before the scheduled flight departure.
Participants arrange and pay for airline tickets on their own. DO NOT purchase these until you have been officially accepted into the program by the HOST university.
For luggage limits, refer to the website of the airline on which you ultimately book your ticket.Getting from the airport to your accommodations will be discussed at your pre-departure meeting.
