Accommodation for your first days in Würzburg
If you need to bridge time, the Welcome Center is happy to support your search for accommodation for the first days in Würzburg. The university signed framework agreements with various hotels in the city which offer reduced prices for employees of Julius-Maximilians-Universität. On demand, we can send you a list with hotel names and further information and can reserve a room in a hotel of your choice.
Accommodation in the guesthouse for shorter research stays
For shorter research stays of up to six months guest researchers can apply for an apartment in the international guesthouse near "Neue Universität", Sanderring.
If you are interested, please contact the Welcome Center or your host institute, which has to fill in a reservation form for you in case there is a vacancy.
You have to keep in mind, though, that the apartments are quite frequently booked out long in advance.
