The Onboarding Service for New Professors at the University of Bonn

The University of Bonn provides newly-arrived professors with a comprehensive onboarding service. In addition to providing assistance with your private move to Bonn, we work together with the departments and administrative units to enable a smooth start at the University. 

We provide assistance quickly, practically and entirely in confidence, tailored to your needs. 

“We want to ensure that newly-appointed professors can start work on day one. To this end, we need to get started before day one. The process begins on the day of appointment.” (Holger Gottschalk, Provost of the University of Bonn).

Assistance with Administrative Matters

Getting started in a new country and a new professional context, especially with a new professorship, can pose a number of challenges.

We are on hand to answer any and every question you might have from A-Z ranging from arrival, equipment, personnel matters, research and teaching to the location of the nearest zoo so as a treat for your children.

We are on hand to provide comprehensive advice and support, so that you can concentrate on your new role. 

If there is something that we cannot do directly for you, we know all the people who can help.

Settling into your Private Life

Moving to a new town poses many challenges, both emotional and practical. 

We are happy to help with all of it, whether looking for a flat, organizing childcare, choosing a new school or organizing the removal van.

Bonn and its surroundings: the Romans, extinct volcanoes, dragons, wine, carnival and much more!
