Are you new to Hamburg and maybe still looking for a place to live? Or are you unsure as to whether you have taken care of all the necessary details for the enrollment process? It can be difficult to keep everything straight. What do I have to do first, what can I do online, and what are the things that I simply cannot forget?

No matter whether you want to know how to register your new address in Hamburg, what to pay attention to when you complete your application for a residence permit, how to get your semester documents, or what the difference is between statutory and private health insurance in Germany – we'll help you prepare for the start of your studies in Hamburg.
