Buddy Programme

To get you off to a good start in Braunschweig, we can find a buddy for you. Buddies are senior students who have been studying at TU Braunschweig for some time and know the university and the city well.

  • Your buddy picks you up from the main train station and takes you to your accommodation,
  • assists you with formalities such as enrolment, opening a bank account or visiting the Registration Office and, if necessary, applying for a residence permit,
  • shows you around the university and the city.
