About your stay in the hospital

Patient rooms

Our patient rooms are equipped with shower/WC, telephone, TV and internet connection. Individual accommodation requirements (single room) will be considered as far as possible by agreement with the treating department.

It will also be our pleasure to help you and your relatives to find a comfortable hotel.

Diet and menu

Our patients can choose from four different meals at lunch time. You can ask the ward staff to have a look at the menu. If your state of health necessitates a special diet or if you have individual needs or customs, we would be pleased to take them into consideration. Please communicate this fact at the beginning of your treatment to the ward staff or to our colleagues at the International Patient Office.

In addition, there are five cafeterias at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. They are situated in the buildings of:

  • the centre for internal medicine
  • the former university hospital
  • the Department of Otorhinolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery
  • the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine
  • the centre for head injuries and mental disorder


Using our wireless network “UKER-Patienteninternet” every patient has access to the Internet, can send and receive e-mails and even establish a connection with the network of the employer par IPsec (if supported).

If you want to use the “UKER-Patienteninternet” you need a HiMed-Phonecard (subject to a compulsory deposit; to be obtained at the registration) with a credit amount.

Patients, who want to use only the Wi-Fi, should not put the phone card into the telephone; otherwise the basic fee will be deducted. Furthermore every patient or his/her relative should check before printing the access data, if a sufficient signal power can be received in the respective building.

Religious practice

In all our facilities Christian ministers are available, if desired. There is also a contact person for our Islamic patients. Jewish and other Muslim spirituals could also be contacted if requested.

The chapels and prayer rooms are at the disposal of our patients and their relatives for retreat, prayer and reflection. In our new ward building of the surgery centre you can find an interreligious prayer room.

After your treatment

At the end of your treatment the doctor in charge of your case will compile a detailed medical report in German or English. This will contain information about the treatment received as well as recommendations for further medical care.
