Buddy-Program of the Department of Architecture

The Department of Architecture has launched a buddy program to support Incoming Mobility Students from abroad and to enable a good start at TUM.

The contact between buddy and exchange student should develop as freely as possible. Being a buddy should not be understood as full-time support. On the contrary - the buddy program should above all be fun and be used to establish good and friendly contacts with students from abroad!

The tasks of the buddies include, for example

  • Establish the first contact between students from abroad and students from the Department of Architecture, TUM
  • Help students from abroad to settle in, both in Munich and at the TUM
  • Assist students from abroad with advice during the semester
  • Help in finding accommodation
  • Support with local administrative formalities 

Benefits for our buddies

  • Gain intercultural skills!
  • Improve your language skills!
  • Establish international contacts!
  • Voluntary social commitment - Your commitment will be confirmed through a short letter!

Application to become a buddy

We look forward to support from our students! If you are interested in participating in the buddy program send an email to incoming@ar.tum.de.

Deadline for the winter term 2019/20 is August, 31st 2019.
