Time runs fast and now you are already going to leave Bielefeld. Before you leave there are some points you shouldn't forget to carry out before departure:


Tell your German health insurance supplier (private and statutory) that you are going to leave. Also, cancel other insurance suppliers, if applicable (such as third party liability insurance)
Cancel your cable television, Rundfunktbeitrag, your German phone and portable phone contracts
Announce your departure at the registration office of the town hall
Don't forget to close your current account at your German bank as soon as you don't need it anymore and your last salary/scholarship has been transferred
If needed, make appointments with your suppliers of water, electricity, gas and heating to let the meters be read on one of your last days at home
Have you been satisfied with you apartment in Bielefeld? Please let us shortly know the facts and contact to the landlord so that we can inform incoming international academics about available apartments
Join the Alumni-Network of Bielefeld University: alumni@uni-bielefeld.de
And last but not least, let us know that you are finally leaving and give us your new contact data for all remaining issues and eventualities. We process your data according to the German Data Protection Law only for a limited period of time.
