Plan your stay
There are several things you must do to prepare for life in Germany. Here's what you have to take care of!
Find a Student Residence Hall
The Accommodation Finder is a very helpful tool for finding information about various student residences in your university town. With just a few clicks, you can even submit an application to the Studentenwerk for a room in a residence hall.
Registration and residence permit
As soon as you have found accommodation, you should register with the local Resident Registration Office. This is where you receive your “confirmation of registration” (Meldebestätigung). With this in hand, you can then apply for your residence permit.
