Planning your stay

You have been invited to Frankfurt UAS – what happens now?

In order to get your research or teaching stay off to a good start, we recommend that you contact the Welcome Center as soon as possible. It doesn’t matter if you are coming to Frankfurt as a guest professor or employee of the university – we are happy to advise you about your upcoming stay. Please note the following steps to best utilize the Welcome Center services.


The Welcome Center developed a registration form to help us advise you on an individual basis. Please fill out the form and send it to the Welcome Center via email at least 2 months in advance, so that we can help you plan your stay as well as possible. If you need help to look for an accommodation in Frankfurt, please let us know the monthly budget you are able to spend on rent.

As soon as you register with the Welcome Center, we will contact you with helpful information about preparing for your stay in Frankfurt. We gladly offer you the following services/advising:  

  • Visa application
  • Internal hiring procedures
  • Formalities and appointments with the Immigration Office
  • Advice about looking for accommodation in Frankfurt
  • Advice about administrative aspects at Frankfurt UAS, for example IT access on campus
  • Cultural information about life in Frankfurt and Germany
  • Additional information for your partner and/or family  

You have informed us when you are coming to Frankfurt, giving us the chance to prepare important appointments for you in advance. Once you arrive in Frankfurt, you can make an appointment with the Welcome Center and we will give you your welcome packet, which includes lots of helpful information about your stay in Frankfurt. Additionally, we will help you get settled during your first few days, for example, how to go to the City Registration Center (Bürgeramt) and register your address or where the documents you will need to open a bank account.  


The Welcome Center is your main contact for administrative questions about your stay in Frankfurt. If you have any questions, please stop by our office or simply send us an email. We are always happy to help!

All good things must come to an end, including your stay at Frankfurt UAS. Please make an appointment with the Welcome Center at least 2 months before you leave, so that we can successfully complete all administrative tasks dealing with your departure, for example, de-registering your address with the City Registration Office (Bürgeramt), canceling necessary contracts, etc.
