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 | October 25, 2021

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.

Here you can find the registration form for the First-Semester Welcome 2021!

WarmUP! Semester Kick-Off | October 25-29, 2021

From October 25 to 29, 2021, we will again organize our WarmUP! week at the campuses of the University of Potsdam. The big highlight will be the Market of Opportunities on the campus lawn at Neues Palais...finally, the student councils, university groups, the central institutions, and associations from Potsdam will once again be able to present themselves. The central institutions will also be present with smaller information markets on the Golm and Griebnitzsee campuses.
At the same time, all institutions and student organizations will also present themselves at the digital market of opportunities.
On the last day of the WarmUP! week, the program will take you to the city of Potsdam, where many cultural institutions will introduce themselves to the "first-year students" with special offers and events.
The planning is in full swing, we hope that we can realize everything. Up-to-date information about the event can be found here or via the university's social media channels.
