Assalam o alikum!
I am Fahad from Pakistan, doing PhD in Informatik (Computer Science) and I welcome you to Kaiserslautern University.
This university is among the best German universities. In programs like Mathematics, Computer Sciences & Electrical Engineering this university holds a high rank.
The University provides a good and healthy opportunity for study and self-development. There is not only a central library but each department has its own library also, spacious lecture rooms and qualified teaching staff. A number of research institutes have close contacts with the University, which gives a good opportunity for practice. Some of the famous Institutes are: Fraunhofer Institute for Technical & Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) and Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE), also German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). These institutes also give an excellent opportunity for students to work as assistants or work with them as PhD students. Students can find some part-time jobs at these institutes.
Kaiserslautern city itself is a very cool and calm place. The University is surrounded by nature and is also only 7 minutes from the city center by bus. Student accommodation is not only spread near the university but also near to city centre. The buses are free for students, thus you get easy and fast access not only to your accommodation but also to shops and to different entertainment centers. Being student you are also entitled to travel to number of cities nearby by train for free.
The University whole-heartedly supports international students and takes well care of them. From the first day of your arrival till your departure they help you in all administrative, accommodation and German language issues. They also arrange different trips around the city and German cities so that you may know many things over here. We have lot of barbecues, parties and other events organized by ISGS & Int Club. The International School for Graduate Studies (ISGS) is a special centre that takes care of international graduate and doctoral students, providing comfortable accommodation, providing support in administrative and social issues. The members of the ISGS help every student greatly as soon as they arrive into the city. Its very nice to have somebody helping you in all your formalities and getting adjust in a new place. Even now I can ask them for a piece of advice. It seems important to me that much has been done to make the University truly multicultural and international. At University you get an opportunity to explore a lot about other countries by interacting with international students and participating in their events also. The University of Kaiserslautern has students from across the world.
There is group of Pakistani students in the university studying in different technologies. We play cricket regularly. We celebrate all the Pakistani and Islamic festivals here. We do a lot of other activities also like hiking, sports at university, cultural activities, etc.

We have some Asian and Turkish shops at city centre where we find most of the Pakistani food and Spices.
Moreover, religion wise, there is a prayer room in the University where we pray. Also, there are two Mosques in the city itself. The following website maintained by Muslim students provide a lot of helpful information on Muslim Group.
