Students can also meet representatives of the departments and central services of TU Darmstadt to get information and ask questions between 12:00 and 15:30. Student services of Studierendenwerk and external organisations also provide information for the international visitors. In the karo 5 lounge, short lectures will be given on the topics of Right of Residence, “Big Sister Mentoring und Networking”, Financing Studies, Student Life in Darmstadt as well as Health Insurance.
