What do “family”, “single person” and “flatshare” mean?

    A family consists of married or unmarried couples with children, some of whom may have moved out, or older couples or single mothers and fathers. Living with a family is usually more comfortable and more spacious than living in a flatshare; however, the homes are not always very central.

    A “single person” refers to someone who lives alone and has a room available in their home.

    A “flatshare” (Wohngemenschaft) refers to a small community of people who live together. In Münster this usually consists of students but older professionals living together is also common.
