Probleme International Studierender

Due to both not having too many dorms and too many people looking for dorms, it’s hard to find accommodation in Potsdam. When I was looking for accommodation for Uni Potsdam, I couldn’t find any and had to go into the Brandenburg An Der Havel Studentenwerk Dorms, because if I didn’t I would be on the streets.   For friends, I’ve generally heard it’s hard to find either because of the aforementioned situation or because the wait list at Studentenwerk is not followed accordingly. I.e I’ve heard that a student waiting for a dorm was 900th or so in line but a student that applied later was put in 300 or so at the same dorm. The student who was given the 300th place in line got in before the first.
