This year there will again be a Freshmen Week (OE). The OE is a period of one week directly at the beginning of your studies in which you get to know the university and your fellow students. We, your student representatives, will organize the OE for you.
This year we created a signal group for you. There you can socialize with the fellow freshmen before the OE starts and we will keep you up to date about the upcoming events. You are welcome to join.

The (highly recommended) preparatory course starts on 2nd October at 09 o'clock. Locations can be found following the link. The course will take place until the OE starts. We particularly recommend the IT introduction where you learn everything about out WIFI and printing.
On Friday the 06.10.2023 we will meet for the first time at the Inauguration Ceremony. In the OE week, starting from 16.10.2023, there will be no lectures for you yet. It is filled with events of all kinds. Among other things, there will be a rally through Harburg, a campus tour and a nerdBar, so you can get to know the university grounds, your sourroundings and your new fellow students.
All our events will take place on the campus of the TU Hamburg in Hamburg-Harburg. The best way to get there by public transport is to take the S3 to Harburg-Rathaus or Heimfeld. Here is the map of the university, so you can always find us.
On October 23rd, real life begins: Your regular lectures begin (exercises usually don't start until a week later).

The OE trip is optional and will take place at the end of OE week. The ride will run from Fr. 10/20/23 to Sun. 10/22/23. We will be back at TUHH around 4:00pm on Sunday. Thanks to financial support by the university and the association of alumni and supporters of the TUHH, the weekend will cost you only tba€ all inclusive. In addition, there will be an official student council shirt for all those who register quickly enough. The trip is very popular and usually booked up quickly!
Registration: tba The start of the registration will be announced during the Ersti welcome.
The trip is going to tba this time. All we can say is that it is a destination in the northern part of Germany, where we will stay in “suitable accommodation”. Yes, there is running water and electricity there!
Important: Liability! This is a private trip, which means that neither the organizers nor the TUHH are liable.
No, only if you don't go! There are no other events planned at the university during the OE trip. That means either you come along or you get bored at home!
We are looking forward to many participants!
