Europa House


The Europa House was built in 1999. Each of the apartments has its own separate entrance. The apartments are bright and modern and fully furnished. There are 19 furnished one-room apartments (29-30 sqm) and nine two-room apartments (58 sqm) with a balcony.

All two-room apartments in the Europa House are maisonettes and have two small balconies. All of the one-room apartments have a small balcony as well. Two of these one-room apartments are designed for disabled occupants and are wheelchair-accessible via a ramp.

The community rooms in the Alexander von Humboldt House (such as the reading room, bar and patio) are also open to residents of the Europa House. The basement contains rooms with washing machines and tumble dryers which may be used free of charge at fixed times.


The Europa House is located right behind the Alexander von Humboldt House on Hüfferstraße which leads straight into the city centre. The Schloss – the University's main administrative building – can be reached on foot in about five minutes, and the city centre is only about ten minutes away. With a bus stop right in front of the guesthouses, there is good public transport to all University departments, Münster’s main station and the city centre. If you have your own car, you can park in the free parking lot situated on the premises of the guesthouses.

Opposite the Europa House, you will find a supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and other small shops in the same street so that you can take care of your daily errands in the direct vicinity. If you want to relax or take a stroll, there are parks and greens very close by, e.g. the Botanical Garden right behind the Schloss.

Residents can take advantage of our bicycle rental service. A limited number of bikes can be hired for a monthly fee.

Apartment furnishings

In addition to a bedroom and living room (in the one-room apartments the bedroom/living room is combined), the fully furnished apartments contain a well-equipped kitchenette (without a dishwasher) and a bathroom. Towels and bed linens are available free of charge. You will need to bring your own bath towels.

All apartments have a TV, landline and Internet connection. Additional beds are available for a small fee. Children’s seats for cars, as well as prams and highchairs and travel beds for babies, are all also available free of charge.
