Guest Houses for international scientists
Every year the TU Darmstadt welcomes a large number of international scientists who come to the university to research and teach. The guests from all over the world will find a “home away home” in the Otto Wolfskehl-Haus on Lichtwiese campus and the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg House.
In the landmarked Lichtenberg-Haus, two halls in historical art nouveau ambience can be booked for TU internal as well as for external events, such as seminars and meetings, anniversaries, or wedding or birthday celebrations. Additional information and reservations through the event room management.
Exchange students from partner universities face a challenge in finding affordable and furnished accommodation for short rental periods, especially in a university town like Darmstadt. The Office for International Student Services and Housing offers special assistance to exchange students from partner universities in their search for adequate housing.
Darmstadt, “City of science”, has already received many refugees and more are coming – including young people, who would like to start or continue their studies at TU Darmstadt. TU Darmstadt offers them access and orientation. In order to make out order out of the various support measures offered, a position has been created to centrally coordinate refugee integration.
ISS supports international students in their preparation for their stay and with getting oriented after their arrival in Darmstadt by providing information about visas, housing and student financing as well as upcoming dates. Furthermore ISS provides consultation and assistance when problems in these areas arise.
