Welcome Day at the JKU.

The JKU Welcome Day is an opportunity to get to know your university better and find out what you need to know to successfully start your studies!

When you come to campus, check-in at the Kepler Hall and get your JKU 'swag bag'! After that, you can take part in a campus tour, attend a JKU Austrian Student Union mentoring session, or learn more about the Main Campus Library. Sign up here for whatever interests you!


Before coming to the JKU, please learn more about the current measures, mandates, and safety protocols in lieu of the Coronavirus pandemic.
