Registration with the City of Tübingen
If you move to a German city, you have two weeks to register your new address with the city. In Tübingen, this is done in the "Ausländeramt", the Foreigner’s Office.
You can either go there yourself (the employees speak English and will assist you in filling in the form) or you can ask either Sabrina or Mara to come with you, if you think you need help with that. If you choose to go by yourself, please remember to bring your passport!
Since 2016 it is obligatory to confirm that you are currently living somewhere in Tübingen to register to the city. There is a document for that called “Wohnungsgeberbestätigung” that you can pick up at our HR and Welcome Service office. Beside that you also need to bring your rental agreement with you. If you don’t have it because you’re staying at a hotel or in sublease, you’ll need a letter by your landlord of hotel staff that confirms that you’re staying at the hotel/apartment for a certain period of time.
You also need to reregister when you move within Tübingen and deregister when you leave Germany for good at the Bürgerbüro:
