Good food and nice accommodation are key to feeling at home in a new city. The Studierendenwerk in Mannheim deals with both of these things. You can find set meals and buffets for a reasonable price in the Mensa, and unwind in the EO or Café Soleil. The Studierendenwerk also provides 3,200 rooms. Prices on the private rental market in Mannheim are also good in comparison to other large cities with a university.
