Your introduction week

The new academic year starts in September... But before your studies start, you'll first take part in the introduction week. That's Purple 2022! During this introduction week (Monday 22 to Friday 26 August), getting to know each other is key.

Get to know your course and make friends for life

You get to know your fellow students and meet friends for life. You will be introduced to your study programme and study city. You will eat together, discover the city together, get to know each other and the study programme, make memories together and much more... What that will look like, what you need, where you need to be, who you can contact, you can find all that here! We will make it a fantastic week, of course within the Corona rules.

* If necessary, the programme may be changed to take account of the Corona measures in force at the time. Check this page regularly to stay informed.

Additional information

During this week, you are expected to bring a bicycle to go to the different activities. So please make sure you have a bicycle available to you this week.

Unfortunately, there are not enough sleeping places for everyone who participates in the introduction week. There are students who do not (yet) have a room in the area. Therefore, we would like to ask you to consider whether it is necessary to stay overnight, so that the students who do not have a place to sleep around Eindhoven can join the introduction week. For the applications for sleeping, the first come, first served rule is valid.

Each year we choose a theme for the introduction week. This year's theme for Physiotherapy is ‘Calling all Superheroes!’ The activities will incorporate this theme. If you have a nice outfit in the theme it is nice to bring it.


The Fontys introduction week is called Purple and will take place from 22 to 26 August 2022. The programme starts with getting acquainted with fellow students and teachers at our location on the Ds. Th. Fliednerstraat 2, 5631 BN Eindhoven. There you will form your own introductory group (including 'intro parents').

The Purple Introduction Week is all about getting to know each other. Getting to know classmates, getting to know the study programme, getting to know the city where the new students will be studying and, of course, getting to know the Fontys community!

Just like previous years, we are planning to make the Purple Introduction Week just as beautiful and fantastic as every year, of course within the measures that are in place at that time. All the 'new' measures will create a challenge, but Purple is motivated to make it a great week again!

No, every course has its own programme and also takes part in central activities (such as the city day and the Purple Festival). Check the programme on this site to see how your intro will look like

During the introduction week a lot of photos and videos will be made. Ranging from selfies and videos on a mobile phone by fellow students to photos and videos by professional photographers and filmmakers. By participating in the introduction week you agree that the photos and/or videos will be published (on social media, flyers, advertisements and websites).

Let's stay connected

Staying connected in these times is sometimes quite a challenge. Now that you are going to study you might have been looking forward to many new contacts, parties and other things that are part of a student's life. On the page 'Let's stay connected' we show all kinds of fun initiatives in the field of sports, social events and offers for help. Take a look and take advantage of it. You really don't have to study alone now!
