Once enrolled, the Christian-Albrechts-University allows Kiel (CAU), to make it more freshmen and new students to study start and the orientation on the university campus as easy as possible.
Numerous orientation activities of faculties, institutes and student councils provide a first insight into the organization of studies and the timetabling and support the contact with fellow students.
Kiel is the seat of government and the biggest city in Schleswig-Holstein, and its size officially qualifies it as a small metropolis. The advantage
in this is that it is easy to get around in the City on the Baltic. The University, the beach or the park are never far away.
To get to the university:
From the railway station, you can take a bus or taxi to the University, your student dormitory or wherever you're staying. Taxis wait outside the north exit (straight ahead), and buses are outside the west exit (to the left).
Kiel University’s guest houses are where international researchers reside during their limited stays at the University, whether they are in Kiel to teach, do research or undergo specialised training.

The Internationales Begegnungszentrum/IBZ, which opened on 1st November 1989, became the second Guest House of Kiel University. Its location is one of the most beautiful in Kiel, directly on the fjord and still within walking distance of the centre of the city.
