The University of Bonn Onboarding Service for New Professors

Professional success is built on a foundation of private contentedness. The University of Bonn leaves no stone unturned to help you find a new home and settle in. 


The vital ingredient to a successful start at a new university is a new place to live. This leads to several questions:

  • Where are the pleasant areas in the new city?
  • Cosy suburbia or trendy neighborhood? 
  • Bicycle or public transport?
  • Rental or purchase?
  • Fitness center or play park? 
  • Villa or house in the country?

We help you to find the home that you need.

Finding a new house is just the first hurdle. 

  • How can I book a good removals company?
  • How can I submit the expenses?
  • What should I take into account?

We can answer all these questions and more — just ask!


Moving house with a family presents an especial challenge. A new school, kindergarten, sports club, new faces and experiences. And so much more to consider!

The University of Bonn is happy to help you find and register for childcare and a good school. 

Your daughter plays rugby? Your son plays the bagpipes? We will help find them the best outlet for their energies, whatever it is that they like to do. 

Just talk to us.

A New Language

Even if you are never short of the right word in a professional context, new arrivals in Germany can sometimes find everyday German a different challenge. Do you need help?

No problem! The International Office at the University of Bonn1 offers bespoke language courses tailored to your needs. 

Just ask!
