Events & activities

Utrecht University aims to help all students feel welcome and at home within the university. This is why we launched the UU Warm Welcome project, which is specifically tailored to support international students with finding their community(ies), building networks, and getting settled at UU.

Besides hosting opportunities for international students to connect with other internationals and Dutch students, such as the UU Welcome Week and the Academic Buddy Programme, we promote other events and activities via our social media accounts. Whether they are organised by student associations or other university departments, their shared goal is to aid you in getting to know the country’s language and culture and becoming active in our vibrant academic community. 

Here are a few ways you can stay informed about upcoming events:
