Services for visiting international academics: Getting settled in Hamburg
The Service for International Academics will assist you with all questions that may arise upon your arrival and in the course of your stay at Universität Hamburg.
- Finding accommodation
We will help you in selecting a city district that meets your requirements and offer advising and support for newcomers in need of an accommodation. We recommend that you contact the University Guest House directly and well in advance of your arrival in Hamburg. International Housing is another recommendable option.
- Child care
We can provide information about child care centers, day care vouchers (KiTa-Gutscheine), schools in Hamburg, and on anything else you might need. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us!
- The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is very versatile and offers a broad range of recreational activities. Feel free to ask us for information if you want to explore the local cultural and sports offerings.
- Hamburg Welcome Center
The Service for International Academics cooperates closely with the city-operated Hamburg Welcome Center (HWC). We'd be glad to make an appointment with our colleagues at the Hamburg Welcome Center for you. The HWC's friendly staff provide comprehensive infomation and all necessary paperwork for new arrivals.
