Welcome days for new students

The aim of the EPFL Welcome Days is for all students to receive information concerning their new curriculum, while meeting with peers, teaching staff and having a chance to visit the campus.

Participation is compulsory for all new students!

Due to the present pandemic and to comply with the health and sanitation measures issued by the Federal Office of Public Health, students will have to come in person to some welcome events, while other welcome events will only be held online (please refer to the detailed information below).
