Welcome to the Heidelberg University!
Starting September 22nd we offer again office hours at INF, new location: Guesthouse INF 370, Seminar room, entrance at Kid´s Club around the courner. Time as usual.

The Welcome Centre is the central information and service institution for international scholars after PhD at Heidelberg University. We provide the necessary information, advice and customized support around all topics relevant for preparing a stay in Heidelberg and everyday life here – from arrival, the search for an apartment and essential visits to authorities up to the finding of an appropriate kindergarten for your children. The Welcome Centre cooperates very closely with other service institutions of Heidelberg University as well as with the administration of Heidelberg. Furthermore, we regularly organize events and excursions for visiting researchers and their families.
