RE: some questions on Weimar and Germany in general
Because I'm long out of the student age, I had to ask a girlfriend, who told me, "come as you are!". There isn't either a formal or informal dress could, except shirts and shoes are a must. Other than that you can wear shorts, belly free, low rider jeans, so everyone can see your "antlers" hovering over your derrière. The motto seems to be "wear what you care to". Inofficially, though, anything that even remotely resembles something that would mark you as a member of a neo right-wing movement is the worst faux pax that you could make (which you probably don't have in your wardrobe anyway), would be, for example, a light green bomber jacket, army camoflauge pants, and marine boots with white tennis shoe laces (symbolizes 'White Power'). You would also have to be sporting a crew-cut, a sleeveless T-shirt and have a stupid tatoo on your arm which would read something like "Sieg Heil!". In that case I think you might get chased from the campus, but otherwise....
Pre-paid sim cards are available in filling stations, at kiosks and sometimes even in super markets. Even cheaper are pre-paid phone cards which you can get in I-net cafés, which can let you, for example, phone home to Russia for 3 Cent per minute, but from the i-net café phone booths.
Laundramats can be found in any mid-size to large city, and you just have to look in the phone book under "Waschsaloon". My girlfriend, who attends Wolfgang von Goethe University in Frankfurt says that some dorms have a coin-operated machine in the cellar, while others do not have one at all.
The Dresdner Bank is on the Steubenstraße 15 in Weimar.
