Welcome Week

During the enrollment period, we are playing host to a Welcome Week (26 – 30 August 2024) for all exchange students at the University of Mannheim.

Orientation programs, receptions, and events will help to ease you into your new environment here in Mannheim.

Students who have received a room offer from Studierendenwerk Mannheim will receive an e-mail containing the details regarding arrival (including how you will get your keys, moving into your room, etc.) a few weeks before the start of the semester.


Welcome to Germany! Have you “arrived” in Mannheim yet? Use our directions to find your way to the University of Mannheim!


Enrollment is your official registration as a student at the University of Mannheim.

Orientation programs, receptions, and events

The International Office and the schools of the University of Mannheim want to help you get off to a good start. We are looking forward to seeing you at our events.

At the beginning of the semester, the university departments and the team of the International Office always organize a wide range of interesting events where you can easily come in contact with other students. The best experience in Mannheim has been the “Raise your flag” party during the Welcome Week where I had the opportunity to meet a lot of people from different parts of the world. Many of them became friends of mine and I spent most of the semester with them.
