Congratulations on your choice for Industrial Engineering & Management (IE&M)!

As from August 2018‬‬‪ your home will be in the Netherlands! ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
From 15th of August 2018, your accommodation will become available if you applied for accommodation through Fontys.

We would now like to invite you to the introduction week on the 21st (Tuesday) of August 2018. Introduction is the way to get to know your classmates, get familiar with the great city of Eindhoven and learn about the Dutch way of life! Of course, it’s not compulsory, but it is highly recommended to attend as it will give you a kick start into your life here at Fontys. But first:

Each international student needs to come in one of the following rooms: 2.40 and 2.43 (08:00 - 16:00), Fontys Building R1, Rachelsmolen 1, 5612 MA.
