Accomodation in Tübingen

We strongly advise you to start looking for a place to stay immediately after receiving the admission notice because of the difficult housing situation in Tübingen.

German Language Courses

The department for “German as a foreign language” (“Deutsch als Fremdsprache“ in German) offers German language classes. Please find more information on the courses and course dates here.
We advise you to enroll for language classes as early as possible because spaces are limited.
