Welcome Days and OE – What's that?

Welcome Days

  • are a joint offer for students from all departments
  • provide general information about living and studying in Hamburg
  • offer opportunities for exploring the campus and the city, and for meeting other first-year students.

Orientation Activities (OE)

  • usually take place one week before the lecture period starts
  • are organized by the individual departments
  • provide information about organizing your studies and selecting your courses
  • offer opportunities for registering for courses in STiNE with the help of OE tutors.


We strongly recommend that you take advantage of both offers.

Where can I get information?

During Welcome Days, the information booth serves as a central meeting point. This is where you can:

  • ask the PIASTA Team anything you want to know, whether about Welcome Days’ program, starting your studies, the orientation modules, Hamburg, public authorities, or other topics;
  • pick up a Welcome Bag, if you haven’t already received one.

Date: will be announced at the end of March 2020
