There are a few things to consider when you move house...
You can pay for a mail forwarding service to have your mail redirected from your old address to your new place. This paid service is available for either 6 or 12 months and can be arranged online: www.nachsenden.de
Semester Ticket and Moving House
Free semester ticket for new student residents in Ulm!
The City of Ulm gives you a free semester ticket when you register your primary residence in Ulm (the student solidarity contribution must be paid). The requirements to receive a free semester ticket are explained here.
Registering New Address
Since your study location supposedly is where you spend most of your time, you should register that as your primary residence. Please go to the registration office within one week of moving in and bring your identity card or passport, rental agreement and a confirmation from your landlord (“Wohnungsgeberbestätigung”).
Public Broadcasting License Fee
On 1st January 2013, the GEZ became the ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice. The public broadcasting license fee is now charged per household rather than per device. This means that tenants who share a unit are jointly and severally liable and must share the license fee, even if only one of them receives a letter from the Beitragsservice. Information on fees, online registration, change of address or exemption at www.rundfunkbeitrag.de
Registering Change of Address for Your Car
