MaExchange aims to help exchange students settle into their new home in Mannheim easily, sustainably, and for free!

The project offers international students an opportunity to borrow household items during their stay, which we collect through donations from other students. Exchange students can borrow various items for a small deposit (for pots and pans 5€, for everything else 0,50€ per item). The great thing about the deposit system is that, as long as the items are in an acceptable condition, you will be able to get your money back once you return them at the end of the stay – meaning you essentially get all the items for free!

The collection dates for the spring semester 2023 are as following: Jan 27th, Feb 2nd and Feb 7th
