Resident Permit

All new arrivals in Saarbrücken must formally register at the Einwohnermeldeamt (Residents’ Registration Office), which is located in the Citizen Center (Bürgeramt) in Saarbrücken, within one week of arrival. The official term for this formal registration is “polizeiliche Anmeldung”.

The Residents’ Registration Office in Saarbrücken allows residence registration on the campus (building A4 4) during the university’s enrolment/registration period. This service is provided by the International Office and enables you the registration of residence without going personally to the Citizen Center.

If you move to a new accommodation in Germany during your stay, you must deregister and then register your new address. Do not forget to deregister at the Residents’ Registration Office before you return to your home country.
