Events and activities

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

We host events such as the UU Welcome Week and Warm Winter to help international students connect with other international and Dutch students. We also spread awareness about other events that are beneficial for international students via our Instagram page (see below). Whether these are organised by student organisations or other university departments, their shared goal is to help you become active in our vibrant academic community and/or familiarise you with the Dutch language and culture.
