HOUSING

For a first time student staying Germany, the experience can be a mixed bag of emotions and apprehension getting housing, insurance, bank accounts and even phone plans arranged. Our approach to this transition is to make the process comprehensive and easy on our prospective clients. We provide housing consultation to our clients who open blocked accounts with BAM. These consultations can be helpful in making the necessary connections to find the right dwelling for you and your potential flat mates. BAM is a one stop shop for those students looking to have a seamless and easy transition from home to Germany.
