Orientation Days

Find your way

At the beginning of each semester, all exchange students are welcomed during the Orientation Days. All you need to know about the university, living and studying in Antwerp will be explained to you. 

Because of the current worldwide Corona pandemic these orientation days will of course be different from other years. We will be moving part of the orientation days online but will combine this with on-campus activities to the extent possible. We will work hard to make your stay in Antwerp a valuable and enriching experience.

Safety requirements

In order to organize these on-campus activities safely, we will have to follow strict safety measures: we would like to kindly ask you to adhere to these guidelines. Repeated non-compliance may result in exclusion from the Orientation Days Program. 

  • Masks: masks must be worn at all times when indoors, as well as outdoors when there is no possibility of social distancing (1,5m).
  • Disinfecting: please disinfect your hands upon entry and exit of the university buildings.
  • Groups: all students will be split up into 5 different groups, and will receive a coloured wristband. 

PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE THIS WRISTBAND UNTIL AFTER THE ORIENTATION DAYS. You will also need this wristbands for on the events on Friday. We will divide these groups according to campuses and faculties, unfortunately we cannot accommodate individual wishes or changes to the groups once they are set. 

Due to the large number of exchange students and the Belgian rules regarding events with larger groups of people, we need to implement this system.
