The poster for the launch event of the PhD Community.The 23rd of May 2018, the PhD Community transforms the rather pompous Ufo into a party venue. We are celebrating the birth of the magnificent PhD Community. This is the first official PhD Community in Ghent, so we have to feast properly and we cannot do it without you, the PhD student of our precious university.

What can you expect?

After work, you travel with your colleagues to the Ufo, where you will be welcomed with a glass of cava. You can hang your coats at our (unsurveilled) cloakroom. Then, you enter the marvellous hall of the Ufo, where a wide range of activities are available to give you the time of your life with your colleagues: a photo booth, free food with two free drinks (if registered), a bouncy house (in the Ufo!!), a live party band and a DJ.

What are you waiting for! Register and join us at this festive afternoon/evening. Do not forget to invite your colleagues from other faculties as well.
