Central first-semesters’ welcome and info fair again in presence After two years, again a colourful programme in the stadium and on the campus

Technische Universität Braunschweig welcomes its first-year students for the 10th time at the Eintracht Stadium. After two years of virtual first-semesters‘ welcome events, all first-year students will once again be welcomed in person on 24 October at 9 am. Students who have started their studies in the last two years are also cordially invited. The central welcome event will be followed by the „Studium ist mehr“ (“Studying is more”) information fair on the main campus.

This year again in presence: the central first-semesters‘ welcome in the Eintracht stadium.

Information fair “Studium ist mehr …” (“Studying is more”)

After that, it’s straight on to the main campus. After the central welcome in the stadium, the information fair “Studium ist mehr …” will start from 10:30 to 12:30. Service institutions such as the University Library, the Student Services and the Study Service Centre as well as the faculties and numerous student initiatives present their service, information and advice offers at over 40 stands. The event on the university square will be musically accompanied by students of the Feierabendbeat.

In addition to first-year students, all students are welcome who have had few opportunities to find out about the diversity of TU Braunschweig and to exchange information and make contacts with representatives due to the pandemic in the last two years.

Arrival at the Eintracht Stadium

If you want to use public transport to get to the stadium, you can take the tram lines M1 and M2. They run from the main station via the city centre to the Eintracht stadium. The M1 line stops directly at the stadium (Stadion stop, direction Wenden). The M2 line stops near the stadium (Gesundheitsamt stop, direction Siegfriedviertel).

Please set off on time for the stadium, as the public transport going to the stadium in particular is very full and the walk from the stops on Hamburger Straße to the Rheingoldstraße entrance to the East Stand takes about 10 minutes. If you live nearby, it’s best to come by bike or on foot. And another tip: The stadium is not heated, so don’t forget warm clothes!
