Many students in Germany find an apartment for themselves or a shared flat with others on the private market. It might be difficult to rent an apartment without being in Germany, because many landlords would like to meet their future tenants in person before signing the contract. For international students it might also be challenging that some German landlords speak only little or no English at all. Flat advertisements are almost exclusively in German, too. The following list of common terms in advertisements from a private blog can be helpful in your search. Additionally we hereby offer you a German cover letter (including the translation, at your own convenience) which you can use when first contacting prospective landlords.
