Housing for Help

The "Housing for Help" project is a homesharing project for students who would like to have a very affordable place to stay in exchange for agreeing to provide a helping hand. You should have some experience in volunteer work or social affairs (e.g., a "Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr"—a gap year dedicated to volunteer social work) and be actively interested in sharing a home with senior citizens.

Students have the opportunity to live for a low rent or even rentfree with senior citizens, and in exchange, they support them in everyday live, such as helping with household chores, doing the shopping or gardening. As a general rule, the following applies: For each square meter room area, one hour of help is provided each month.

For more information, please contact Ms. Widdel, Student Accommodation Department, Studentenwerk Hannover, phone +49 511 76-88 029.
