Warm Welcome

At Utrecht University, we aim to give all our international students a Warm Welcome, not just when you arrive in Utrecht but throughout your time here.

UU Welcome Week

When you arrive, you will be invited to join our Welcome Week to help you get to know the university, the city of Utrecht and each other! We hope this will help you get settled and ready for your upcoming studies!
