Where do I find things in Aachen?
A short guide for new residents
On our information page about “health issues”, you will find advice on what to do if you are ill (or, rather, if you want to get well again).
All of the local authorities in the City of Aachen are listed on the city’s website. Here you will find the Residents’ Office (e.g. for registering an apartment), the Aliens’ Registration Office (e.g. for all issues relating to your stay) and further offices.
All Aachen universities offer academic counselling. If you do not yet know exactly what you want to study, you can turn to the central academic counselling service. If you have questions about a specific subject or department, make use of the counselling centre of the relevant faculty.
