What our researchers say
The support I had before and just after my arrival in Dresden was a great help. With the help of the Welcome Center of the University, I immediately found an apartment in Dresden-Neustadt. I did not expect Dresden to be such a beautiful place.

If I try to think about what I would remember ten years from now about Dresden, I can surely say TUD Welcome Center would be in top five. My romantic experience with German culture and German way of life started with people from the Welcome Center, one may think it is an office dedicated to help foreign scientists but then you will miss the true essence of those people who are working here. If you miss your home you can easily find a new home within the Welcome Center comrades as they smile from deep inside while asking you ‘How may I help you?’.

A Message from our Rector
TU Dresden has clearly and unambiguously positioned itself towards open-mindedness and tolerance. We are grateful and proud that we at TU Dresden learn, teach, work and live together with around 5,000 international scientists and students to achieve top performances in research and teaching together. Science is international! TU Dresden thrives on interaction between foreign and German students and scientists, who are all a firm part of our university, regardless of religion and background. It was our aim, and we have succeeded, to make foreign staff and students enthusiastic about TU Dresden. Now I see it as our duty to ensure that they experience Dresden as a charming city and a great place to live. Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you here!- Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Hans Müller-Steinhagen

This Thursday the Welcome Center hosted an event arranged by intap – the international talent project for Dresden.
