Welcome Program

Welcome Program

Lecture Period from 17 October 2016- 10 February 2017

There will be a crash course in German offered from 9 September to 7 October, three mornings a week.  You should aim to arrive during the first full week of September, so that we can get you settled before our German course starts. There are two other matters you should be aware of: the dormitory rental office is open Monday and Tuesday 9-12 noon, Thursday 9-12 noon and 2-4 PM. If you arrive outside of these times, you will have to spend a night in a hostel.

 

Note that 3 October is a holiday! If you will not be participating in the German course you should arrive to sign your lease on 4 or 6 October or thereabouts. There are two other matters you should be aware of: the dormitory rental office is open Monday and Tuesday 9-12 noon, Thursday 9-12 noon and 2-4 PM.
