No guaranteed housing

The number of requests for housing, especially at the beginning of the academic year (September) and at the beginning of the summer semester (February), is very high and exceeds our capacity. This is why the University of Luxembourg cannot guarantee housing for all our students.​ We strongly recommend that applicants look for other alternatives.

WeConnect

The University of Luxembourg partners with WeConnect which offers intergenerational coliving in Luxembourg, helping students to find affordable housing by living with a host with a room to rent.
