Arrival supportWelcome events are organised by the university (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/international/international-students-in-tuebingen/advice-for-international-students/advisory-course.html).
Services and support for international studentsDuring the orientation weeks, (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/international/international-students-in-tuebingen.html), students will be escorted to public authorities for registration purposes and helped with opening bank accounts, registering with the university, and setting up their health insurance. In addition, a number of social events, in which class members can get to know each other, are organised (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/international/international-students-in-tuebingen/getting-started.html).
The "Studierenden-Initiative Internationales Tübingen" (http://en.studit-tuebingen.de/) is a group of students at the University of Tübingen that helps new international students settle down in Tübingen and ensures they have a good time during their semester or year abroad.
AccommodationThe university offers student accommodation starting at about 180 EUR per month. Many students opt for private accommodation (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/international/international-scholars/accommodation/housing-market.html). Do apply early as there are few places. (In other words, apply for accomodation when you submit your application and before you know whether you will be admitted.)
