Welcome to Karlsruhe!

Dear incoming students, Welcome to Karlsruhe!

This is the official website of the Orientation-Week (O-Phase) for international students of the winter semester 2019/20. Here you will get the latest news about all the events during the Orientation-Week and about student life here in Karlsruhe.

The O-Phase is one week that is planned and organized by the student group ESN Karlsruhe, the International Students Office (IStO) and a lot of voluntary students, the O-Phase is the start of your year (or semester) abroad here in Karlsruhe! In addition to getting to know the city, the university and all of its facilities, you will have the chance to get in contact with all the other foreign students coming to study abroad in Karlsruhe this semester. You will meet current students during the O-Phase who will guide you as voluntary tutors throughout the week (or perhaps for your entire stay) in order to make sure you get a good start into your time abroad.

When does the O-Phase start?

O-Phase officially starts on Monday 16th of September 2019 and ends on Sunday 22nd of September 2019. On the Sunday evening before O-Phase starts (24th of March) everyone will meet up in a bar to get to know each other.
