The International Student Services (ISS) supports international students, exchange students and prospective students with a refugee background in all non-academic areas.

The mission of the ISS is to provide the services necessary for the needs of international students, to support the arrival of international students in Germany and at the TU Darmstadt and thus to contribute to the academic success of international students as well as to promote the diversity and international experience of all students on campus.
