Welcome to Bochum!
We are very pleased to welcome you to one of the most special cities in Germany.
We are ESN Bochum, a student organisation for exchange students that is organising events in order to make YOUR time in Germany unique and unforgettable.
At the beginning, it might seem very hard to settle in and it seems not that easy to find friends - we thought about offering you our help. Students help students - our motto.
Lost on your first day? As we all know, it is very exciting to go abroad on your own. Since we all experienced that, we are offering a pick up service every semester. Volunteers from our organisation will show you your dormitory and it is such a good chance to find new friends on your first day. They can answer you almost every question about Bochum and the life here.
In the first week of your stay, we are organising a Welcome Week with many events like Speed Friendshipping, pizza dinner or our traditional Welcome Party. Watch out for the best start you could get.
We collected some tips for Bochum and its surroundings which you can find here.
