Survey of Munich Students on their housing situation

home_kasterlGoals and content

In spring 2019 the Institute of Sociology is conducting a study on the housing situation of students in Munich as a part of a student research project.
Questions about the housing situation of students are discussed widely. Difficulties in finding accommodation are of particular relevance here. We would like to gain more detailed knowledge about

  • how munich students are living and,
  • which factors influence the satisfication with the respective housing situation.

In addition to the characteristics of the apartment itself, we are interested in other aspects of student (co-)living, such as the division of housework in student flat-sharing communities.

Information for respondents

Respondents are students at munich universities. Your participation is voluntary. However, a meaningful picture of students' housing situation can only emerge if as many people as possible participate. The data collection takes place in anonymized form, correspondingly your data will be treated confidentially. The results of the survey are only presented in summary. All information will be treated in accordance with the legal provisions. It is not possible to identify individual members. All employees are obligied to comply with the strict data protection regulations.

Thank you very much for your support!
