Welcome to HafenCity Universität Hamburg

The international office advises HCU students who are interested in an international experience, such as a semester at a foreign university or an internship abroad. In addition, it maintains ties with numerous universities and organisations, which provide information about international study or internship opportunities, as well as financing a stay abroad.

The information on our website cannot replace personal advising – get in touch with me, come by the office. I look forward to hearing from you!

HCU Welcome Buddy Program - Students wanted!

The Welcome Buddy Program at HCU Hamburg is looking for students from Germany and abroad who want to get involved.

International students who are newly admitted to HCU often have numerous questions about studying at HCU and living in Hamburg. In addition, they usually need assistance with various administrative matters such as registering their new address, opening a bank account, etc., especially if they speak little or no German.

This is where you, as an HCU Welcome Buddy, come into play. Your support is crucial at this stage, especially considering the current situation of studying in a digital/hybrid semester

You are already studying at HCU and would like to get involved as a buddy?
You are a new international student at HCU and you need a welcome buddy?
