Arrival and Orientation

winter semester 2017/18

Orientation Days:

12. - 18.09.2017 -> to be confirmed

Pick-up Service:

10. - 11.09.2017 -> to be confirmed



Pick-Up Service

It's best for you to arrive 1 or 2 days prior to the Orientation Days. On these days between 8 am and 8 pm we will offer a pick-up service from the railway or bus station in Wernigerode and you will be accompanied to your dorms.  At your dorm you will get the keys.

If you arrive late at night or on the weekend you should bring food with you as most supermarkets in Germany close at 8 pm and are not open on sundays. You should also bring enough cash (€) for the first days as not all of the shops accept debit and credit cards.

Orientation Days

Our team of the International Office organises the so called Orientation Days at Harz University of Applied Sciences in Wernigerode before the courses start. During these days we will

  • show you around the campus and library
  • introduce you to the computer services
  • tell you more about our sport course offers
  • hand out the timetables for the semester
  • help you with important formalities
  • open a German bank account with you
  • register you with the local authorities.

Of course you will also have a lot of fun when you

  • get to know the group
  • learn your first words of German
  • hike mountain Brocken
  • go bowling
  • visit the Castle Wernigerode
