UGA Exchange, Universitat BambergThe University of Bamberg is a middle-sized University with an academic focus on the humanities, social and economic sciences, as well as human sciences rounded out by application-oriented computer sciences. Interdisciplinary research activity and the ability to combine degree programmes contribute to the university’s distinguished status in Germany’s academic community.
At the University of Bamberg, research and teaching are treated as one entity; service facilities and administration foster innovation and productivity. Success can be seen not only in exceptional individual research projects, but also in larger-scale cooperative research.
The university is committed to quality teaching, and the high rankings that the university has received are an incentive to continue to strive toward that goal.
Program LocationWith its approximately 70,000 inhabitants, Bamberg will make it easy for you to settle in and get acquainted the city. Bamberg's old city was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register in 1993, and the city is currently experiencing what can only be described as a boom. Since the 2009/10 winter semester, the student body has grown from approximately 9,000 students to 13,000 enrolled in the 2013/14 winter semester. This means that every sixth person in Bamberg is a university student, and this in turn means that Bamberg is a very young city with a lot to offer.
As a university town, Bamberg has a lot to offer on a night out. In addition to the numerous pubs, bars and clubs, the city's many cafes provide the perfect setting for a short break – or even an entire afternoon spent with friends and acquaintances.

Exchange students will receive assistance from the Bamberg International Office can help you find a room. Students apply when completing the full set of Bamberg host university application materials. At that time, students who submit the "Wohnen in Bamberg" form with the Bamberg host application, receive written confirmation prior to arrival in Bamberg. Rooms arranged through this service are either one-person apartments with a kitchen and bathroom, or two- and three-roomed apartments in which residents share a kitchen and bathroom. Each hall of residence has only a limited number of apartments that are assigned on a first come, first served basis.
Those who do not wish to use this service will have to arrange for private accommodation in Bamberg independently.
The term or period of your rental agreement is fixed by your hall of residence and is non-negotiable. The rental period is as follows:
Winter [Fall] semester: 1 September through 28 February
Summer [Spring] semester: 1 March through 31 August
This means that tenants must pay rent according to this schedule, even if they have not yet moved to Bamberg at the start of rental period (e.g. students first arriving in October or April, respectively). This applies without exception to all University of Bamberg exchange students.
