Will somebody from the Rachel Carson Center assist me in finding housing?
The Rachel Carson Center does not provide its fellows with housing. Fellows are required to organize their own accommodation. However, the RCC is happy to provide fellows with advice, including an information sheet with useful links, when searching for suitable accommodation. Upon acceptance, the RCC will also send you a comprehensive housing guide and will provide basic assistance in finding an apartment. Munich’s desirability as a residential location is reflected in the housing market and its prices. But even here, with a little patience, it is possible to find a suitable place to live.

The website of the City of Munich provides an introduction to the twenty-five different city districts. This overview is helpful to gain a first impression of each district’s pros and cons as residential areas. LMU Munich and the RCC are located in the Maxvorstadt district.
