Housing services

Boasting a population of slightly more than one million, Cologne is Germany’s fourth-largest metropolis – a highly attractive one on top of that. The increasing influx of people can make the search for adequate accommodation quite difficult. Oftentimes dozens of apartment hunters compete for a single apartment. That is why the International Office strongly recommends that you start looking for a place to live as soon as possible. Doing so will enable you to find an apartment in good time before your arrival so that you can dedicate your first days in Cologne to more important things.

From the beginning, the library's strong service focus has led to continuous self-evaluation and optimization of its professional range of services.

Campus IT is TH Köln - University of Applied Sciences' IT service. It is headed by the CIO and was founded in June 2007 when Department 4 (Data Management) and the Center of Information Technology were merged.

I would start choosing the subjects one week before the course starts, and to explore the webpage, because they will not help you to do this at all.
