Welcome to the DESY Campus!

Welcome Services is the central contact point for all German and foreign visitors, be it a guest scientist, a participant for a conference or a summer student. The following pages should help you to get prepared for a stay in Hamburg. The assistance comprises information on foreign law, reservation of guestrooms, house hunting, language courses and cultural events. Our aim is to simplify the lives of our scientists and their families and to enable them to do first steps in Germany independently.

The services are divided into 3 divisions:

                                           Flagpol with International flags

The International Office at DESY is the first place to go to for foreign guests and employees and their families. Our office is located in building 6 on the first floor, together with the Housing and Hostel offices.


                               Hostel room, with a bed and a desk

Through the Hostel office you can book accommodation in various guesthouses directly on the DESY premises- subject to availability.


                                     Hamburg City Elbe Channel

The Housing office assists DESY campus scientists in finding suitable external accommodation.
