Welcome to TU Berlin

A positive welcome culture is very important to us at TU Berlin. It forms the basis for a respectful and productive working environment where everyone has the chance to fulfill their potential. Our welcome culture is not just about providing a friendly reception for new members of the University; it is also about creating an open and tolerant atmosphere where everyone is valued.

We believe that a welcome culture is invaluable, not only for our students and staff, but for society as a whole. By fostering openness and tolerance, we create an environment where ideas and innovation can flourish, and by doing so contribute to a better world.

We are committed from the outset to making everybody arriving at TU Berlin feel welcome and part of the University. To achieve this, we offer a wide range of orientation and introductory events, such as workshops and courses, to make it easier for people to settle into their studies or work at TU Berlin.

Our welcome culture is also something practiced by our more than 7,000 members of staff, who each day commit to creating a supportive and appreciative environment for everyone. Our staff represent a kaleidoscope of cultures, genders, age groups and life journeys. This diversity is our greatest asset, as it enables us to develop creative solutions and innovative ideas as well as approach challenges from a number of different perspectives.

We are delighted to welcome you as part of our community at TU Berlin!
