Probleme International Studierender

I arrived in Potsdam during the COVID-19 pandemy. It was very difficult to find an accommodation as a foreigner but it was even harder due to the health situation. Some examples of difficulties were that I could not visit any accommodation in person (my country had imposed a strict lockdown and I could not travel outside my country), and that some owners were not willing to guarantee me the rent from the date I could be authorized again to travel to Germany. The Welcome Center was very helpful in my search for accommodation and I found my current place thanks to one offer that they shared.
