Course recommendations
It is a pretty bureaucratic system regarding course election, so be patient. Seminar courses are interesting, try to avoid boring "Vorlessung".

Personal recommendation
The recommendation would be not to be shocked by the size of the university and the anonymity of a single student. Also, take your notebook with a WLAN card with you in order to take advantage of the university wireless network.

Housing
Type of housing: WG
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why?
I enjoyed living in a WG. I shared the place with 5 other people and three of them were German so I had the opportunity to practice my German and meet lots of German friends through them which was great! Also, super cheap!

There are more places which are worth seeing and events which are worth visiting. If I had to choose one pub, it would be Klein Koeln in Friesenstr., the most important event in Cologne is the Craneval.
