The Students Welcome Desk is reopening for three months starting in September

Du 03 September 2019 au 29 November 2019

The Students Welcome Desk is back for three months, from September 3 to November 29, 2019 in the Université de Lyon’s building, as well as from August 27 to November 8, 2019 in Saint-Étienne, to greet all new students for the new academic year.

A better welcome and easier integration of all students

The Students Welcome Desk (SWD), run by the Université de Lyon, welcomes students and helps them integrate by offering administrative support, practical information and relaxed events with other stakeholders involved in enhancing student life and the attractiveness of the region.

Every year, about forty institutional partners, as well as organizations and socio-economic players, join the member and associated institutions of the Université de Lyon in helping the arriving students prepare for their academic year.

Enhancing integration and discussion

The « Meet and Greet » programmation includes more than 40 events dedicated to promoting culture and conviviality, in both Lyon and Saint-Étienne. These events allow to gather students during the day or after work, so they can meet and talk with people involved in student life and integrate well into life in the city.

The 2019 Students Welcome Desk edition will close on Thursday, November 21, 2019, from 6 to 10 PM, with a special event held at the Musée des Confluences, and free for all students.
