Student housing in Pforzheim

Pforzheim has a population of approximately 110,000 people, and about 5,000 students study at Pforzheim University.

The housing market can be a bit tight, especially at the beginning of the semester. The size of the city and the large number of students and persons seeking accommodation may make it difficult to find suitable accommodation near the campus by your desired date.

As there are only a few rooms available at the beginning of the semester, you should think about renting a room one or two months before the semester starts (best chances: July/August and February). In Pforzheim, students can use their student ID as a so-called “Studi-Ticket” allowing them to use the public buses at no charge.
