Arrival in Luxembourg


In order to make your arrival in Luxembourg as convenient as possible we recommend you to come during the Arriving Days (the week before the start of the semester). We will organise information meetings during this time in order to give you all information about your stay in Luxembourg and simplify your arrival. We will also finalise your registration and explain you all documents of your Welcome package.


The SEVE Mobility Incoming office offers you a free pick-up service. This means we will try to find students of the University of Luxembourg who will pick you up from the airport or train station and lead you to the University, your residence or the youth hostel. All you have to do is register for the pick-up service so we know the exact date/time of your arrival. Then we will look for potential pick-uppers and once a pick-upper has registered for you he/she will contact you directly and clarify the last details before your arrival in order to welcome you at your arrival. You will get further information 4-6 weeks before the start of the semester.


A buddy is your first friend in Luxembourg. Your buddy can be your pickupper as well, but this can also be somebody else (e.g. if your buddy is busy during your arrival time). He/she may guide and assist you to get settled in Luxembourg. Your buddy may help you integrate, show you around (restaurants, bars, nightlife) and make you discover Luxembourg. An important part of his/her job is that you don't feel lost in your new environment.


Prior to the start of each semester, the SEVE Mobility organises a number of events for exchange students which provide a valuable opportunity to become acquainted with the University, its students, the city and its surroundings. For the Welcome Day we invite you for a brunch where you can meet all pick-uppers, buddies and many other luxembourgish and foreign students. You will get more information as well as a detailed programme once you have arrived in Luxembourg.
