The place to go for international students

Many international students are traveling abroad in a foreign country for the first time. Students quite often do not have family or friends there when they first arrive.  Finding your place in a new city, being immersed in a new community, culture, and language can be very challenging for new students.

The "International Students" department offers students the support to address these challenges and issues and ask for help for assistance.

We take care of everything surrounding your studies:

  • Student Residence Halls
  • Cafeterias and Cafes
  • Financial, social, and psychological support

We also work closely with the international offices of the various higher education institutions in Mannheim and exchange information to assist the (sometimes) complicated bureaucracy that international students face in Germany.

You can find us during the normal operating hours of the Infothek
