The new academic year starts in September ... but before your studies start, you'll first take part in the introduction week. That's Purple 2023! During the introduction week getting to know each other is key.


Get to know your study programme and make friends for life

You get to know your fellow students and meet new people from around the world. You will be introduced to your study programme, the university, and the city of Eindhoven.

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!
