We will once again kick off the new academic year with two events. Due to the coronavirus, we had to adapt the event concept. We are currently planning for a mixture of online and face-to-face offers at the locations of the University of Potsdam.

StudiUP First-Semester Welcome | November 2, 2020

First-Semester Welcome: Nov 2, 2020
WarmUP! Semester Kick-Off: Nov 2-6, 2020

The welcome event for all first-semester students will take place on November 2, 2020. You can expect an interesting and varied program. The President of the University, the Mayor and other guests will welcome you and we will introduce you to different parts of the University and student life.

Due to the coronavirus and the safety and hygiene regulations in place, we would only be able to allow very few students to attend the event in person. That is why we made the decision to welcome first-semester students in a completely digital format.

WarmUP! Semester Kick-Off | November 2-6, 2020

Every year, WarmUP welcomes about 1,500 students who want to find out more about what the university and the city of Potsdam have to offer, meet fellow students and celebrate the beginning of the semester. This year, such an event will not be possible. That is why we are organizing a WarmUP Week at the different locations of the University of Potsdam from November 2-6, 2020. Presentations about the central institutions will take place at all three locations. Student organizations and student representative committees will introduce themselves on the Digital Market of Opportunities. We are also currently preparing a scavenger hunt so that you can get to know your university and its locations before the beginning of classes. Preparations are in full swing and we hope that we will be able to make everything happen as planned. Up-to-date information about the event will be available here or through the social media channels of the university.
