1. President’s Foreword
Dear Visiting Students and Researchers,
Welcome to the Universität der Bundeswehr München. Whether you are carrying
out research or taking part in a student exchange program, I am pleased that you
have chosen our university.
The Universität der Bundeswehr München is a place where innovative research
leads to new-found knowledge; where modern teaching methods elicit new ideas;
and where research and teaching are complemented by creativity, sports, and
cultural activities. Living and learning, researching and teaching: on our campus
these concepts constitute an inseparable unity. I am pleased that you will have the
opportunity to experience all of this first-hand during your stay here, and I hope
you will also see that we have made internationalization of teaching and research
one of our top priorities at the University.
In addition, I encourage you to take advantage of the many cultural attractions in
Bavaria. Munich, the surrounding area, and the Alps have a lot to offer the whole
year round. Getting to know the country in which you are living, including its people
and its culture, should also be a part of your study time abroad.
I wish you all the best during your stay at our university!
Prof. Merith Niehuss

2. The Bundeswehr University Munich (UniBwM)
The Bundeswehr University Munich was founded in 1973 with the aim of providing officers
and officer candidates with a thorough university-level education that would also prepare
them for civilian careers. After all, most regular soldiers leave the Bundeswehr after 13
years. Since its founding, the number of students has been rising steadily: today there are
around 3,700 registered students, including 360 women, 50 civilians, and 150 international
students and officers.
In contrast to other universities, the standard period of study at the Bundeswehr University
Munich is only 3 years for a bachelor’s degree and one additional year of intensive study for

3. The University Campus
The Bundeswehr University Munich is one of Germany’s few campus universities. It covers an
area of 140 hectares and contains all facilities that students and lecturers require for
successful learning, teaching and researching.
The university campus is surrounded by a fence and can be entered through four gates. In
order to enter the campus on the first day of your arrival, please show your passport or ID
card to the guards at the university’s main entrance. From there you can either proceed to
the International Office (building 38, room 0120, working hours: Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) or
directly head to your department, in which case you will have to make sure in advance that
someone will await you there in order to welcome you at our university.
Once on campus you will receive a university access card which allows you to access the
campus through all four gates 24/7 without having to show your passport or ID card at the
university’s main entrance every single time. Please be prepared to pay a 20 EUR deposit on
your university access card. You will have to pay this deposit in cash at the Bursar’s Office
(building 40, room 0101). Also, make sure to keep the original receipt of your deposit
payment as proof to get it back at the end of your stay.

Please inform the International Office about your bank details (IBAN, BIC). Our university
administration needs your IBAN and BIC/SWIFT number and will transfer the 20 EUR deposit
back to your account at the end of your stay. It is also possible to receive a pay out of the 20
EUR deposit in cash at the Paymnet Office. Please tell the International Office about two
weeks prior to your departure, so our university administration will be able to process your
request in time.
After you paid the deposit, you can pick up your university access card as well as your
campus ID card at the Campus Cards & Housing Office (PAUS) (building 155, room
0108).

3.4. Language Training Center
The Language Training Center is a central training
facility of the Bundeswehr Unversity Munich. Its task
is to conduct practical language training for all
students during their study program so that they can
attain and maintain the standard language proficiency
level (SLP) required in the Bundeswehr, and also to
provide functional language training. The acquisition
of good general language skills is intended to enable
military students to understand functional literature,
to follow presentations, and to participate in
discussions. Currently courses are offered in ten
foreign languages.
3.5. German Language Courses
If you are interested in attending a German language
course, you can do so at the language school
“Deutschkurse bei der Universität München e.V.”
They offer various (intensive) German language
courses on all levels for academic as well as for
professional purposes. This language school offers

campus: a 400m track (for track and field athletics), a large fitness center for working out, a
pool for swimming and diving, as well as a sauna. Also volleyball, horseback-riding, golf and
many other activities are offered.
Anyone interested can gain access to these facilities and take advantage of what is offered.
You can apply for a free sports membership card via the International Office. All
you need to bring is a passport photograph.

through the International Office. Such a permit is free of charge and will be issued according
to your license plate number. You will receive a permit sticker that has to be stuck onto your
windshield. If you do not have a permit, you will not be allowed to pass through the barriers
at the main entrance with your car. Please park your car off-campus on the first day of your

5. Participating in Research at our University
The Bundeswehr University Munich is an educational and research
university according to Humboldt's ideal and is well-established in the
national and international research landscape.
The ideal framework conditions of a campus university with an outstanding infrastructure
offer a broad range of working and cooperation facilities notably in research. Due to the
excellent trans-faculty cooperation in automobile, security and aerospace research, the
Bundeswehr University Munich is recognized and plays a leading role in these fields also in
international research.
Over the past years, the Bundeswehr University Munich has constantly expanded its main
field of research “Security in Technology and Society”. We encounter current aspects of
security research in a variety of different areas: political conflicts, unpredictable natural
disasters, security gaps in IT systems, and the global financial crisis. Against this backdrop,
the University’s scientists analyze and study the topic of security in its full complexity in
various fields of research and application. Security requirements in technology and society
are changing at a dazzling pace, and it is up to scientists to devlop proceduires and methods
to adequately deal with these challenges.
The Bundeswehr University Munich has also enriched its research activities by entering into
new cooperations in the past years, which include important cooperation agreements with
extra-university research facilities and industrial enterprises.
You are welcome to conduct research in one of our many technical laboratories in the fields
of engineering and IT on campus to gain practical experience through a traineeship and/or
your full-time involvement in research projects.
Furthermore, it is possible to write your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis under the supervision
of one of our professors. If interested, please contact the International Office at least three
months prior to your arrival and we will advise you about the matter.
For more information, please visit:

6. Accompanying Studies
studium plus studium plus offers mandatory general knowledge courses that go beyond the
college curriculum at the Bundeswehr University Munich, allowing students to explore new
fields outside their major and gain skills that can be applied later in their careers.
management skills, intercultural training, social media competence, leadership skills).
The many trainings and seminars offered by stadium plus are free of charge for our
exchange students and are held regularly every trimester by qualified trainers and teaching
staff.

7. Buddy program
The Study-Buddy Program was launched by the International Office in 2009 to provide
information to international newcomers before their arrival and to help them adjust to the
new environment in their first weeks. If available, every new international student gets a so
called “Buddy”, i.e. a German student who is familiar with the university's structures,
German culture, language and bureaucracy and who will give a helping hand during the first
weeks of your stay.
Our buddies also organize events, excursions and activities – an excellent opportunity to
meet people from all over the world, to exchange experiences and to explore Munich and
surroundings with like-minded people!
Participating in the program will provide you with valuable advice on everyday life at our
university and in Munich and will help you to come in contact with German students more
easily.
In the past, we witnessed that the program really helped to foster friendship and mutual
understanding and broadened the cultural horizon of all participants.

10. Getting there
Tickets for Public Transportation
If you will be arriving at the University by public transportation, purchase a day ticket
(“Tageskarte”) for your first day in Munich. Use one of the blue “MVV” or red “DB”
ticket machines found at every station. Choose from the following options:

If you are coming from Munich’s central station (“Hauptbahnhof”), select “Tageskarte
Innenraum” (daily ticket for Munich City Center)

If you are coming from the Munich Airport or bus station, select “Tageskarte
Gesamtnetz”

If you are not travelling alone, a single “Partner-Tageskarte”, which is valid for up to
5 adults, will be less expensive than buying individual tickets for each person

Once you are settled in for daily use of public transport a monthly ticket for students is
recommended. If you need the ticket only to move between the campus and more
central places in Munich, the ticket will cost around 50 Euro per month (Ringe 1 bis 3).
Make sure to validate your ticket before getting on any train. Some tickets are validated
upon purchase and will not fit in the slot of the blue ticket validators.
From the Munich Airport / Central Station to the University
If you will be arriving at the Franz-JosefStrauß Airport (MUC) in Munich, we
recommend you to use the suburban
trains S1 or S8 to get from the airport to
“Hauptbahnhof“ (Central Station) or
“Ostbahnhof” (green lines).
Once you arrive at “Hauptbahnhof” (Central Station) or “Ostbahnhof”, you will
have to change trains.
There are two options:
► Take the suburban railway (“S-Bahn”) S7 (green line) in the direction of
“Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn”, “Aying”, or “Kreuzstraße”. At Central Station
the S-Bahn leaves at an underground platform. Get out at the stop called
“Neuperlach Süd”.
► Take the underground (“U-Bahn”) U5 (blue lines) in the direction of
Neuperlach Süd. Get out at the stop called “Neuperlach Süd” (end of the line).
11
Once you arrive at “Neuperlach Süd” you will have to take a bus to get to the
university. Please follow the signs down to the busses and take bus no. 217 in the
direction of “Unterhaching” or bus no. 199 in the direction of “Campeon
West”. These buses run every 10 to 20 minutes (on weekends and after 6 p.m.
less often). Get off at the third stop: “Universitätsstraße”. At the bend in the
road, you will see the main entrance (University Main Gate) of the Bundeswehr
University Munich.
In case busses are not running, please take a taxi. If none are waiting at the
station, you can order a taxi by calling via the taxi call box below the railway
bridge.
When you are the University Main Gate, please display some form of ID (ID
card, passport) to the guards.
By Car
From the Autobahn A8 München-Salzburg you should take the exit marked Neubiberg. From
there it is less than 0.5 km through a residential area to the main entrance to the University.

11. Accommodation
11.1. Accommodation in our guest house in Munich City Center
The International Office disposes of the fifth floor (6 rooms) in a housing facility that belongs
to the Bundeswehr Career Center Munich. The building is located in Munich City Center very
close to the Olympic Park and is easy to reach by public transportation. Accommodations are
freshly renovated and furnished. The kitchen, bathroom and showers are shared for the
whole floor. All rooms are furnishes as shared double bedrooms. Depending upon availability,
we can either offer you a single room or a place in a double room. For more detailed
information, please contact the International Office well in advance of your stay.
11.2. Accommodation in Munich
There is a shortage of affordable housing in Munich, which means that
accommodation is generally very expensive. Please be prepared that you will have to
pay between 350-500 EUR per month for a room in a privately owned shared flat in Munich
and its surroundings. Supply and demand vary throughout the year: at the beginning of each
academic year in September/October the demand for accommodation is particularly high. We
therefore recommend you to start looking for accommodation well in advance of your stay at
the Bundeswehr University Munich.
Short-Term Rentals (1-3 months) / Holiday Rentals in Student Dormitories
The Munich Student Union runs an agency for holiday rentals in cooperation with the student
self-administration in the “Studentenstadt” Freimann (student village). This agency gets
potential short-term tenants in contact with the residents of rooms in student dormitories,
who wish to temporarily sub-let their room for a certain amount of time (e.g. between
semesters or whilst they are completing an exchange semester abroad).

Rooms in Shared Flats
Another option is to find accommodation by contacting the Housing Referral Service of the
Studentenwerk Munich (student union). The Housing Referral Service passes on the details
of several hundred private rooms to students who have not been able to find a room in one
of Munich’s student dormitories.
Private rooms on offer are updated online on a daily basis. In order to be able to view all of
these offers and request specific contact details of potential landlords you will have to
register online. You can then contact the landlords directly and usually visit the apartment in
person. If you are searching for an apartment from abroad, try to arrange for individual
agreements with potential future landlords.
Please note that the Studentenwerk Munich only holds the position of an intermediary and
accordingly does not verify the landlord or any of the offers they make!
If you intend to begin your studies in October, you should be aware of the fact that a great
number of new students will be looking for a place to stay in Munich at this time of year. We
therefore recommend you to start searching for accommodation well in advance. You will
probably have the best chances to find something relatively soon, if you search between July
and September.
In order to get the telephone number of a landlord, you must be in possession of a valid
username, provide your certificate of enrolment and pay the student union membership fee,
which currently amounts to 26 EUR.

Please note: If you want to conduct research in one of our departments, e.g. while
writing your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis, or if you want to complete an internship in one
of our many laboratories, you do not need German skills. In this case, a good command
of the English language is sufficient and will be taken for granted, if you apply to
participate in research at our university.

13. Registration at the Town Hall
Since you are coming to Germany not as a visitor/tourist but as an exchange student, you
will have to register as a resident at a town hall within two weeks of your arrival.
In order to register with your new address, bring your passport and invitation letter with
you.
In case you stay on campus, please register at the town hall (Rathaus-Bürgerbüro) in
Neubiberg.
Rathaus Neubiberg | Neubiberg Town Hall
Rathausplatz 12
85579 Neubiberg
Phone: +49 89 600 12 151

Opening hours:
Mon-Fri

Thu
2-7pm
Public transport: Take the 211 regional bus to Neubiberg and get off at “Rathaus”.
If you have accommodation in Munich, you need to register at the town hall in Munich.
Kreisverwaltungsreferat (KVR) München | Munich Town Hall
Ruppertstraße 19
80337 Munich
Phone: +49 233 96000
E-Mail: [email protected]
Opening hours:

Public transport: Take the 211 regional bus to Neubiberg and get off at “Rathaus”.
14. Radio and Television Broadcasting Fee
After registering at town hall you will receive mail from the public broadcasting service with a
request to register with them and to pay your contribution fee.
What does that mean?
Like in other European countries, also in Germany the state charges a fee for the use of
radios and televisions in order to finance the public broadcasting stations. Every household is
charged with a flat rate of 17,98 EUR per month for all technical devices that are able to
receive the programs provided by the public broadcasting service (ARD/ZDF mainly). This
contribution fee equals the current maximum fee. It needs to be paid quarterly by every adult
occupant of a flat/house.
According to the new regulations of 2013 it is no longer decisive whether a household
possesses technical devices or whether these devices are actively used to receive the public
broadcasting programs.
In case of shared flats with multiple tenants, as of 2013 only one occupant is obliged to pay
the contribution of 17,98 EUR per month whereas the others are asked to de-register or
exempt themselves from paying (contact: Beitragsservice von ARD, ZDF und
18
Deutschlandradio, 50656 Köln). All fellow flat mates are, however, legally bound to
compensate this payment.
