The Welcome Days are designed to make your transition to Ghent University and university life as smooth as possible. When you attend the Welcome Days, you will find a wide variety of sessions, events, and social gatherings to help you get to know the university and city better, find answers to your questions, and make new friends.


On Thursday 19 September a general information session will be held in the morning at the UFO building during which you will receive practical information about Ghent University and the City of Ghent. After the session you are welcome to join the Information Fair where you can collect your student ID-card and UGent login-account details. You will receive a goodie bag with a hard copy of the Welcome Guide. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about accommodation, insurance or social activities etc.

On Friday 20 September your Ghent University faculty organizes an information session in the morning. Your guest faculty will send you more details on this session by e-mail.

During both afternoons we will organize social activities where you will meet fellow students, the best way to start building your new network of friends!
