Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre is the first point of contact for internationally mobile researchers and academics and their host institutions when planning a research stay at Bielefeld University. We advise you on questions relating to the organisation of a research stay, and provide information and guidance on a wide range of issues such as visa requirements, health insurance, family issues, and general information about Bielefeld University and the Bielefeld area. We also help you to find the right accommodation.

On our portal you will find a lot of useful information and links which already answer your initial questions. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist you with preparing for your trip and supporting you during your stay in Bielefeld.
