Support for your start at university
You have finally received your admission to study at TU Ilmenau? Your arrival is imminent, but you are still quite disoriented? You have questions like...
- How do I get to Ilmenau? And how is the way from the train station to the campus?
- How can I move into my dorm room?
- How do I have to register?
- Which authorities do I have to register with as an international student? And how does that work?
- How do I get connected to campus life?
No need to feel lost!
Because your we4you buddy knows the answers! We will put you in contact with a buddy (English for "friend", "helper") before your arrival, who is already studying in Ilmenau and knows how everything works here.
Your buddy will answer your questions before your arrival and organize your pick-up from the train station. During your first weeks in Ilmenau she*he will support you and make your start into the study and city life easier.
Participation in the buddy program is free of charge for international students!
How the Buddy Program Works
For students who want to support newcomers
For newcomers who need assistance
Forming Buddy Pairs
After we have found a buddy for you, you will receive an email from us. This will be about 4 weeks before the semester starts.

If there are any problems, if your buddy doesn't get in touch or never seems to have time, please contact us. We are happy to help, but we need to know the problem.
