Events for Exchange Students: a welcome and introduction

A Welcome and Introductory Event for Exchange Students: An introduction with a tour of the campus and the city

Dear international students,

We are all concerned with the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). To date, there have been no confirmed infections here in Göttingen. Nevertheless, the University of Göttingen would like to do everything possible to minimize risk of infection and to protect the students and those employed by the University from the virus. Therefore, until further notice, all currently planned major events at the University have been cancelled.

We must therefore inform you that the Introductory Event for International Students for Summer Semester 2020 scheduled for the 11th of March will be cancelled.

Additional information on the Coronavirus and the various measures being taken by the University are available at Please stay informed, paying particular attention to the recommendations for students entering Germany from risk areas.

Alternatively, we will offer the presentation via a video conference on March 11th. All necessary information will be sent via email.

We regret the cancellation of our welcome event and wish you safe travels. We will be happy to answer your questions by phone or email.

Sincerely yours,
The International Student Office
