Where can I get information?

During Welcome Week, the information booths serve as a central meeting point. This is where you can:

  • ask the PIASTA Team anything you want to know, whether about Welcome Week’s program, starting your studies, the orientation modules, Hamburg, public authorities, or other topics;
  • buy a ticket for PIASTA's Welcome Week Party on Friday evening; and
  • pick up a Welcome Bag, if you haven’t already received one.
