Rental contract and moving into the dormitory
After arriving in Augsburg, you should go to the Studentenwerk's office as soon as possible and sign your rental contract. You should sign and pick up your contract before moving into the dormitory.

After signing, you are allowed to move into your dormitory room. If you are unable to pick up your contract in person, you can also go directly to the dorm (e.g. on arrival in the afternoon or early evening). Please note: You can only move into your student residence on a weekday (Monday - Friday). Therefore, it may make sense to plan a few nights in a hostel, for example.

- Opening a bank account
- Bank transfer semester fees (if not already done)
