Dear Majd,

I Hope you are doing fine!
To help you find a room in Cologne, I think the "koordinierungsstelle Auszugsmanagement" can be very helpful for you. They are helping you to find a flat and support you. Their telephone number is: 0221/22123397

Concerning your residency, I think it would be good for you to contact an institution which provides the help of volunteers that know about the procedures in Cologne.
The flüchtlingsrat Köln can help you. Their address is: Haus der evangelischen Kirche, Kartäusergasse 9-11, 50678 Köln
Phone: 02213382249
I really hope you will get help as soon as possible. Don't hesitate to contact us again

Hi Majd,

Henny´s answer is pretty informative! Let us know how it goes. I found a list of other counseling services in Köln as well:

From Diakonie Köln:

Susanne Pack
Telefon 0221-160 38-69
Sprachen: Englisch, Portugiesisch, Französisch

Martina Domke
Telefon 0221/160 38-26
Sprachen: Englisch, Französisch

Ana Jawad-Pietsch
Telefon 0221/160 38-59
Sprachen: Dari, Persisch, Englisch, Französisch

Birgit Pikullik
Telefon: 0221/160 38-42
Sprache: Englisch

And there is a map here of other places to seek advice in Köln. I think as Henny said, it is a good idea to get in contact with those in the area that will be more knowledgable about Köln specifically.

All the best :)
