Level of Support: University of Marburg, Marburg, Germany

On-Site Staff:

The International Office staff at Uni Marburg provides support for IGSP, IUSP and regular exchange students.

Arrival & Orientation
IGSP: An IGSP representative will meet you at the Frankfurt am Main (FRA) airport, provided that you arrive by the specified time on the arrival day, and assist you in getting the train to Marburg. You'll go through orientation during the first few days of the program.

IUSP:  Uni Marburg has information on traveling from Frankfurst to Marburg.  IUSP staff will meet you at the main train station in Marburg on the designated arrival day and assist with the transfer to university housing.  There is a comprehensive orientation program offered in conjunction with the intensive language class at the beginning of the program.

Regular Exchange: Uni Marburg has information on traveling from Frankfurt to Marburg and will provide information on getting from the train station to the residence halls. You are encouraged to participate in the pre-semester intensive German class, that doubles as an in-depth orientation and introduction to the university, the German academic system, and the city.  There is an additional charge for this course. 

Other Details
Your housing will be arranged in university residences (Studentenwerke), and the International Office offers several regional day trips.  There is no charge for the trips, but space is limited.  Sign-up details will be provided at orientation in Marburg.  You can get involved with local students through the Tandem Partner language program, and Uni Marburg has also partnered with a community volunteer organization to allow students to get involved that way, also.

Health & Disability Resources:

Uni Marburg does not have any on campus medical facilities, however, the International Office can assist you in finding local clinics or hospitals, as well as English-speaking counseling services. 

Servicestelle für behinderte Studierende (SBS) is the on-campus student disability resource center.
