In planning your travel to Ulm, you should keep a number of things in mind:
Arrival Days: Please recall that it is usually not possible to move into your room in a student residence on the first day(s) of any given month. Particularly during orientation period and at the beginning of a semester, when large numbers of students arrive, there are certain arrival dates specified. If you arrive before these dates, you must make arrangements to stay in the youth hostel or hotel at your own expense until moving in is possible.
All incoming ERASMUS/EXCHANGE students will be picked up by their S.T.E.P.S. tutor at the train or bus station in Ulm or Neu-Ulm. It is not possible to arrange for pick-ups in other locations.
S.T.E.P.S. tutors work as volunteers. Do not expect to be picked up in the middle of the night. Time your travels so that you arrive in Ulm between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.
Your S.T.E.P.S. tutor will contact you via eMail. You should exchange phone numbers and photos so you will recognize each other easily.
