MUAS - Munich


There are a few things that should be organized at the beginning of your stay in Munich:

  • Get cell phone plan: Unlock your cell phone if necessary to get an international plan, or buy an unlocked phone. Only unlocked cell phones are able to get prepaid plans from German providers. For example, T-Mobile has an international plan that works everywhere in Europe.
  • Credit card / bank account: Keep a record of credit card numbers, and tell your credit card company which countries you may be using your credit card in. 
Also, for some housing you need a German bank account. There is also the option to get a German credit card. Your German mentor could help you with this. See chapter "Campus and Integration" for more information.
  • Transit pass: In Munich, the students can buy the “Semsterticket”. It’s a ticket that can be used for the entire public transport network in Munich and is vaild for 6 months. It costs about 200€. But it’s worth it because there is a great network of trains, subways, trams and buses (ex. Deutsche Bahn, MVV)
  • Get around: You could also buy a bicycle for your stay in Munich. There are some second-hand shops or you could check Ebay Kleinanzeigen: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/stadt/muenchen/ for used bicycles.
  • Get student card at orientation and pay student fees: The first event the International Office hosts is the orientation day. You have to be there to get your student card (you need it for your Semesterticket) and to pay student fees.
  • Configure computer for university internet access and username: In the first days at university, you will get access to the university internet and a username.
  • Get gym membership if necessary: There are a lot of options for gym memberships, like Clever Fit, Fit Star, Fit X, Fitness first, Body & Soul, etc.
