These are currently at around 190 €.

How many apartments/rooms does the University provide for their foreign students? - The Student Union of the University of Halle Wittenberg has only a limited amount of student dormitories. The reason for that is the housing situation in Halle which is very comfortable. Finding an accommodation will not be a challenge in Halle.

However, this does not include health insurance (which is mandatory for students in Germany). If your health insurance covers your stay in Germany depends on your country of origin and/or your insurance company. Please contact them for further information.
