What does it cost to study in Augsburg?


Augsburg's attractiveness is reflected in the city's steadily growing population. Nevertheless, the university location scores points with relatively moderate rents compared to Munich as well as many smaller university towns. The costs of studying are made up of the local cost of living and the costs of studying (semester fees, learning materials).


The semester fee at the University of Augsburg is currently €150.63 (incl. student union fee and semester ticket).


The "22nd Social Survey - The Student Survey in Germany" from 2021 surveys the cost of living for students. In the summer semester of 2021, the average monthly expenditure of students in Germany was 842 euros per month.

A significant part of the cost of living is rent. In the publicly funded halls of residence (e.g. the Studierendenwerk Augsburg), this is inexpensive. At the moment, the rent there is between 292 and 472 euros, including utilities. However, certain conditions apply (e.g. income level) in order to get a place in the hall of residence.


International students from non-EU-countries should note that proof of funding must already be submitted for the visa application. It is considered a guarantee that they will be able to manage their studies financially. Learn more about the amount required.
