The first steps at a new university can be exciting! We want to make sure that your transition will be as smooth as possible. We have compiled some information on housing, visa, orientation programmes to make you feel at home quickly.

We highly recommend to apply for the orientation programmes as they will walk you through all formalities (such as setting up a bank account, getting health insurance, etc.). We also recommend to apply for accomodation in the student residences as the housing situation in Konstanz is very tense.
