Welcome Guides

© DSW /Jan Eric Euler

The work of the "Welcome Guides" promotes and supports the integration and, above all, the arrival of international students at the university locations. With their commitment, the Welcome Guides help the new students to get orientation after their arrival in Germany.

They help to find the right contact person and support the caretaker in the residential complexes in preparing the care packages and handing over the keys to the rooms. In doing so, they make an important contribution to ensuring that international students feel at home in their new university location.

At the start of the semester and thus before new international students move into the residential complexes, the Studentenwerk is regularly looking for committed residents of their residential complexes who want to promote the integration of newly arriving students from abroad. Job offers for new "Welcome Guides" are published on and the social networks of the Studentenwerk.

Are you traveling from abroad and need help with initial orientation? If you are interested, we will send you a Welcome Guide who will be at your side in the early days at the new university location. Please write an email with your last name, first name, location, redidential complex and date of arrival to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
