For the winter semester 2020/21 it is planned to offer a "virtual" or "hybrid" Welcome Desk during the orientation weeks. The tutors of the Newcomer Service Team will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the start of your studies at the University of Bremen, and provide advice and information on health insurance, semester fees, semester ticket, the ERASMUS certificate of arrival, registration forms, visa applications, etc.
Please bring along a passport photo for the Semesterticket.
After paying the semester contribution , uploading the health insurance certificate in MOIN and submitting the "acceptance of a study place" the semester documents (confirmation of enrollment, semester ticket, student ID) will be issued.
How to: Semesterticket
All students must register at the municipal office in Bremen within two weeks after moving into a flat or room in Bremen. There is a municipal office on campus (Bremen Service University - BSU). The following documents are required for the registration:
- Passport or ID card;
- "Anmeldung" (Application form)
- "Wohnungsgeberbescheinigung" (Housing certificate)
Please fill pages 3 and 4 of the "Anmeldung". An English translation of the form is here. Page 5 will be stamped and signed by the "Meldeamt". The "Wohnungsgeberbescheinigung" has to be signed by your landlord/landlady. After submitting these documents to the municipal office, you will receive a confirmation of your registration.
Due to Corona precautions the offices are still closed. Therefore, you have to submit scans of the documents by email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" .
You will need the city registration (“Meldebestätigung”) to apply for a library card or to open a bank account, among other things.
