Welcome to Munich!

In order to be able to move into an apartment in Munich in time for the start of the semester, you should ideally start looking for an apartment before you get to Munich. If you are already in Munich there are many different possibilities to find an apartment.

Found an Apartment? Register now!

In Germany, every inhabitant is required to register with the authorities if their stay will last more than three months. If you have found a room or an apartment you have to register at the appropriate registration office within one week:

In order to register, you will need the following:

  • Your passport/ID
  • A rental contract or a proof of moving-in from your landlord
  • Your visa (if available, EU citizens do not need a visa)
  • Your residence permit (Aufenthaltsgenehmigung)


Please remember to inform all other important parties, such as your university and your medical insurance provider, of your change of address. For most institutions, this can be done online.
