Studentenwerk Leipzig welcomes all international students. We offer various services to facilitate your start and stay in Leipzig, so that you can focus entirely on your studies.
Please note: Unfortunately, we are not able to give you any information about enrolments and other university-related formalities. Please refer directly to your university/academy. Their contacts are on this webpage in the “First Contact” section. If you are looking for a room in our student halls of residence, please inform directly on our dedicated webpages.
Our services are free of charge for students attending the universities and academies covered by us.
For international students, the first place to go are the International Centres (Akademisches Auslandsamt) or the persons assigned with this task at the respective university.
You can find excellent information on studies in Germany on the Deutsches Studentenwerk and DAAD websites.
If you need help, please contact the student councils as quoted above, Psychosocial Counselling or Social Counselling services of Studentenwerk Leipzig.
