Marburg is a university town. The Welcome Centre exemplifies
how closely the university and the town are interconnected.
As lord mayor of the university town Marburg I am delighted that
many visiting scholars choose to come to Marburg. For the duration of
your stay, no matter how short or how long, you all become citizens of
our town, and we will try our very best to make you feel at home in
Marburg as quickly as possible.
The Welcome Centre provides information, advice and support in all
areas which are relevant to your stay in Marburg. Our part and our
privilege as representatives of the town is to assist you with all
practical matters of everyday life such as housing, childcare and
schools. We are glad to do so.
The Philipps-Universität Marburg has a decisive impact on life in
the town of Marburg. Conversely, the Philipps-Universität also depends
on Marburg to be a lively and attractive town for visiting scholars,
resident professors and students alike. The town and the university are
well aware of this fact and therefore work closely together.
Guests of the university are also guests of the town. To all
of you I say: Welcome!
