PhD Hospitality Network – host.link.exchange

Housing situation in Münster – help us help international doctoral candidates.

The housing situation in Münster adds an extra hurdle at the beginning of the PhD – in particular for those coming from abroad. Our plan is to establish a network of doctoral candidates (international and German), who would like to support their newly arrived peers with a couch or another accommodation opportunity or house hunting support for a few days (you decide how long).

  • If you have some extra room, a sleeping couch, would like to sublet your room (now or in the future), have any contacts regarding an available apartment, or some energy to support a peer looking for accommodation, we appreciate if you sign up for our network so we can contact you or click here.
This temporary solution is a good opportunity to help and give back to others and we highly appreciate your help!
