New Student Day


New Student Day Goes Green: New students will be greeted at TU Berlin under this motto on 7 October 2019. Orientation events, an info market, and street food await all newcomers from 10 to 16:00. Efforts have been made to make the New Student Day as green and sustainable as possible with climate-friendly topics included in the program, a street food market that avoids plastic, and thorough and consequential waste management. 

If you are unable to attend, the event will be livestreamed. Both the livestream and a video recording of the event will be published on TU Berlin's YouTube channel. We’re ready for the new Semester!
