During the introduction week, we will provide you with all the important information you need at the beginning of your studies and offer plenty of help to get you started. It always takes place during the week prior to the start of lectures.

In addition to the interdisciplinary welcome and information events, the subject-specific introduction events for your own subject during this week will provide important information about your first semester at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU).

In addition, the Academic Advisory Offices and the student councils offer special consultation hours and other opportunities to gain information.

In order for you to get comfortable at JGU, we aim to support you leading up to and during the introduction week with the following supplementary programming from the Student Advisory Center and our student ambassadors – generally beginning in March/September. All events will take place in German unless otherwise indicated.

With the exception of a small number of subjects, all JGU courses take place on campus. Our campus map can help you find your way. It includes main street names, the most important buildings, facilities, and lecture halls, as well as the relevant public transport stops. Your digital regional transit ticket authorizes you to use regional public transport.
