Student Residence Buddy Programme

Our New Student Residence Buddy Programme: Be a Buddy!

Studentenwerk Würzburg launched its Student Residence Buddy Programme to promote intercultural exchange and give German and international students who are living in one of its student residences the opportunity to get to know each other. We pair up international and German students who have similar interests and a common language. The German buddy will help the international buddy settle into his/her life in Würzburg, will show him/her around the student residence and will help with any problems he/she may have while moving in and adjusting to life at the student residence.

Once the international buddy has settled in, the two buddies will spend time together in shared activities. How often do the buddies meet in their spare time and how do they spend their time together? That's completely up to them. The purpose of the programme is to help international students meet people and get to know the city of Würzburg and give German students the opportunity to build international connections.

The social counselling team of Studentenwerk Würzburg will be happy to help with any problems or questions the buddies may have.
