Welcome Service

Welcome to the University of Augsburg! 


The Welcome Service of the International Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt) is the central consultation center for researchers from abroad and also supports the supervising chairs and institutes.

We are very pleased about your interest in the University of Augsburg and hope to welcome you soon and enable you to have a good start here. Therefore, we support you with our service already prior to your arrival with all important questions concerning your stay with us.

You will receive specific support from us, e.g. when looking for accommodation or for childcare facilities for accompanying children, as well as a lot of information on formalities such as the obligation to register, employment, opening a bank account, insurances, etc. We would also like to simplify for you the access to central university facilities.

Please note that our website is currently still under construction. You will find extensive information here shortly. If you have any questions at this time, please contact us directly. We are always happy to help you!

Directions to the Welcome Service

If you are taking the tram line 3 to the university, you get off one stop before the university at the stop called “Bukowina-Institut/PCI”.

The tall, grey building behind the tram stop is the Büro-Center-Messe ("BCM") building and you simply have to take the elevator to the seventh floor.

The room 7005 will be towards your left when you are leaving the elevator.
