Edith Stein College

Unlike our other guesthouses, the Edith Stein College is not operated by the University. It belongs to the International Student Halls of Residence Association (Internationale Studentenwohnheime e.V.) which provides inexpensive, furnished accommodation to international students and academics. The International Office at the University of Münster has preferential rights in selecting occupants and can rent out the apartments to its guests.

Most of the units in the guesthouse are small one-room apartments (approx. 14 sqm). There are also two small two-room apartments, about 22-24 sqm in size, which can be occupied by one or two persons. There are four larger two-room apartments (about 28 sqm) for two people, in which an additional children’s bed can be installed.

Please note that the photos shown are sample images.


The guesthouse is situated on the inner-city ring in the immediate vicinity of Lake Aa, Münster’s popular recreational area. From here, you can easily explore the south end of Münster on foot, and there is a bus stop just around the corner to get to the main station and other parts of Münster. There is also a supermarket on an adjacent street.

Apartment furnishings

The apartments are relatively small and are simply and functionally furnished. Nevertheless, you will find everything you need for a longer stay. All rooms have a kitchenette and their own small bathroom with a shower. The kitchenette is equipped with sufficient crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.

Each apartment has a free landline and Internet connection which is activated for each guest by the International Office. The necessary password is faxed to the hosting institute and can be collected there on the day you move in.

As the apartments are the least expensive we offer, we recommend that you inquire about their availability as early as possible.

Please note: In the coming months repairs and renovation work will be carried out in the apartments in the Edith Stein College.
