Am in Germany since 9 months and I get the 3 year approval 5 months ago, am now in Schweinfurt Camp. Untill now I didn't find a flat, I prefer a big city which has university, and I will go wherever there is a flat..
P.S I am searching through all the apps websites and friends but didn't find untill now..
Here are some options on cities and websites where you can look for housing. I hope it´s helps you to get started!
Freiburg University Medical Center (uni-freiburg.de/universita...)
The city isn´t huge but it is in the south of Germany!
Resources where you could get in touch with groups in Freiburg, and search for an apartment in that way:
Medical School: leipzigmedicalschool.de/
The first website looks especially good! There is support provided in the whole process.
FRANKFURT AM MAIN:
Medical School: carl-remigius.de/standorte...
Pro ASYL is based in Frankfurt am Main and may be able to provide assistance:
Caritas also for assistance. Contact info is at the bottom of the page:
Also if you find a city that you are confident about wanting to move to, it may not be a bad idea to find a room/apartment as a "zwischenmieter", so that you are then in the city while you are searching. I think that can make a big difference in what you find as well as your likelihood of getting the apartment.
