What does studying in Augsburg cost?


The attractiveness of Augsburg is reflected in the steadily growing population of the city. Nevertheless, the university location can score points in comparison to Munich as well as to many smaller university cities with relatively moderate rental rates. The costs for studying are composed of the semester fees of the university and the cost of living on site. All students have to pay a fee of € 114.85 for each semester. This amount is divided into the Studentenwerk contribution (52 €) and the semester ticket price (62,85 €). The cost of studying a month and a city comparison of rental expenses can be found in the 20th Social Survey of the German Student Union (2014). On average, the expenditure amounts to € 726 a month, split into

  • 52 € for clothes
  • 33 € for telephone / internet

The expenses for rent including ancillary costs in Augsburg average € 289. This puts the university city in 32nd place out of 54 listed cities.
