Welcome Event for 1st Semester Students

With the 'Welcome Event for 1st Semester Students' we would like to ease your start into your studies at our faculty. We invite you to spend a day with your future fellow students and with us, getting to know each other, but also your course of studies, the future lecturers and also our building. 


Due to the restrictions of the Corona Pandemic, the welcome event will have to be a little different than usual. We will not be able to welcome you all together in our largest lecture hall, but we will guide you through the event in study program related groups and with a maximum of 20 to 40 students.

Organization of Welcome Event

The welcome event will take place face-to-face in our building at Sanderheinrichsleitenweg 20 in Würzburg in groups of up to 20 to 40 students. Each group will be at the university for approximately eight hours. Since we cannot yet estimate whether the cafeteria or dining hall will be open, please bring your own lunch.

The welcome event will start at 09:00 in lecture halls H.1.1, H.1.2 and H.1.3. 

Please be in front of the entrance of the lecture hall building approximately 15 minutes before the start of the event. Please follow the instructions for directions and parking in the underground parking garage. Please be sure to bring your student ID and the letter with your k-number and password. You should also have a smartphone or tablet with you. You don't necessarily need a laptop on your first day. 

And most important, don't forget your face mask! Depending on the hygiene regulations in effect at the time, you may also need 3G proof.

During the whole day there will be an open cafe in the open space in front of the seminar room I.3.20 with students of the higher semesters, where all possible questions and technical problems can be clarified.
