Freshmen Days

Freshmen Days 2020

Have you just arrived in Munich? Do you still have dozens of questions running through your head? No problem, with the Freshmen Days we want to change that and provide you with enough information.

Unfortunately, the Corona pandemic has again prevented a large part of the presence programme from taking place this year but you will nevertheless have the opportunity to get to know each other personally. However, the motto is the same as during the entire Corona pandemic: stay flexible, the programme may be affected by certain changes due to the pandemic, if that is the case you will be informed here. Below you will find the latest version:

Please seek out only one library tour, the times are specifically designed so that everyone should have the opportunity to attend one of the sessions.
