We are your home in Hamburg Alsterdorf and Othmarschen
Our association has set itself the task of promoting the coexistence of German and foreign students in house communities and thereby making a contribution to international understanding. Everyone is welcome here, regardless of their religious affiliation.
The Carl-Malsch-Haus houses 89 students from Germany and all over the world. It is near to Ottensen, a very popular and frequented area in the western part of Hamburg, a few minutes away from the Elbe and a thirty minute commute to the university. The rooms of various sizes spread over three houses generate a flat sharing community on each floor.
The Überseekolleg is situated in the northern part of the city, just four kilometres away from the airport. Fifty percent of the 102 students living there are from Germany , the other fifty percent are from other countries.
The college is comprised of three houses midst green lawns. The rooms are separate but there are shared amenities on each floor.
Our houses are primarily reserved exclusively for students, but we also regularly accept a small number of trainees or FSJ students.
Minimum age: 18 years, maximum age: 28 years
