Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre is the place international academics, researchers, scientists and other university-related professionals and their families can go to seek support and advice regarding their stay at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). The Welcome Centre also offers support and advice to hosts from RUB's faculties.

We are looking forward to assisting your preparation for your trip and supporting you during your stay. We will provide you with information on specific topics relevant to your visit to Bochum, ranging from residence formalities, to useful tips to help you feel at home. We are looking forward to hearing from you!



All researchers who come to RUB from abroad should register with the International Researchers' Database as soon as possible (ideally prior to their arrival in Bochum). Once you have registered online, you and your accompanying family members can personally take advantage of the services and information that the Welcome Centre provides for RUB international guest researchers.
