#myTUBERLIN – Photo competition to mark the start of the winter semester 2019/20


The motto of this year’s New Student Day is “New Student Day Goes Green”. Appropriately, we have adopted the motto for this year’s Instagram contest. Using the hashtag #myTUBerlin we want to capture what makes the TU campus green and sustainable. Oases between classes, vegan food in the canteen, low-traffic areas: What makes a positive impression at TU Berlin and/or what are some ideas to make campus greener? We look forward to your Instagram posts and all your exciting impressions and insights.

2nd place: 1 x Voucher for German Rail (150 €)

3rd place: 1 x Voucher for Yorck-Kino (50 €)
