Welcome to Bielefeld University!

The Welcome Centre is the first point of contact for internationally mobile researchers and academics and their host institutions when it comes to 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 the pages of our portal you will find a lot of useful information and links which might already answer your first questions. If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to assist you with the preparation for your trip and to support you during your stay in Bielefeld.

Please let us know that you are coming to Bielefeld and register -> online. This will help us to make your arrival in Bielefeld as smooth as possible and to support you even before your arrival with more information on relevant issues. Thank you for your co-operation!
