Accommodation

Check the link for your accommodation for amenities, room size and location. Rooms can be extremely small. It isn't unusual to have very little space around the bed, shorter beds, only a few inches for a closet pole, tight showers and/or buildings directly outside your window.

Jugendhotel Berlin City (or similar)
Address: CrellestraBe 22, 10827 Berlin

Viessmann Company Guesthouse, Allendorf
While at the Viessmann Company, students will stay in a guesthouse arranged by Viessmann.

You and your friends may request each other as roommates by editing your on-line study abroad applications. The Office of International Education can not assign roommates unless students request each other.

In some cases, participants may be able to elect a single room. There is always a significant fee; check with the Office of International Education for an estimate if you are interested.  NOTE: Checking the "single room" check box in your online application does not constitute an official request for a single room quotation.  You must ALSO contact the OIE directly via email, phone or by visiting the office, to make an official request for a single room quotation.Those who do not make a direct request to the OIE will be assigned a roommate.


Meals Review the estimate for the amount of money you should bring to cover meals in the Full Cost of Participation worksheet (linked in Step III of the application checklist). It is not reasonable to think that you can save money by spending less than the food estimate provided by the OIE! This estimate is meant to be the BARE MINIMUM in relation to your particular destination!

Mode of transportation: school bus

  • If you plan to ride the bus, your on-line study abroad application must show "I will take the group bus from Oshkosh to the airport" on the transportation tab. You may request a pickup or end-of-program drop-off in Milwaukee by emailing reinkem@uwosh.edu. If you don't make this request in advance, the bus will not stop in Milwaukee. Check your on-line application if you aren't sure whether you chose to ride the bus; if the information is incorrect, edit your information AT LEAST two business days prior to your departure.

    The bus will wait for late arrivals for a maximum of 15 minutes before departing. If you miss the bus, it becomes your responsibility to arrange a ride to the airport.

    You may park in UW Oshkosh parking lot 30 for a maximum of 30 days, over the summer or interim periods only, with an unexpired UW Oshkosh commuter parking permit (indicated by an "S" on the permit) valid for the duration of your program. Lot 30 is located next to Gruenhagen Conference Center.  You must use one of the stalls that is furthest from the parking lot entrance.

    Students with “evening parking permits” (also called a night permit) may not leave cars parked in this lot for the duration of their program.

    If you don't have a valid permit, you may purchase a temporary permit from Parking Services ((920) 424-4455) in the lower level of Blackhawk.


  • If you do not plan to ride the bus, your on-line study abroad application must show "I will arrange for my own transportation from Oshkosh to the airport" on the transportation tab. It is then your responsibility to arrange for transportation between your residence and the airport and to arrange to meet the group at the airport. Check your on-line application if you aren't sure whether you chose to ride the bus; if the information is incorrect, edit your information AT LEAST two business days prior to your departure. If you indicate in your on-line application that you plan to ride the bus, and then don't show up to meet the bus, your group may be delayed as they attempt to reach you.
