In recent years, Jena has experienced an increased economic growth. This development is rather positive. On the other hand, it has resulted in a significant population increase. It is therefore quite difficult to find a reasonable accommodation in Jena. You should thus deal with your future accommodation in Jena at an early stage of your preparation.
If you are entering the country, you can stay in a hotel, hostel, or in a private accommodation in the first few days and search for another accommodation on site.
Regularly, you can come across false adverts published in online property portals. Beware of any adverts in which top flats are offered at surprisingly low price. Do not pay for a flat that you have not visited.
