Make new exchange students feel welcome at KLU and show them what KLU is all about! Apart from introducing KLU and campus life to the newcomers, you can also plan shared activities in your free time. Meet for a coffee, show your buddy your favorite places to hang out in Hamburg, shop, go to the movies or a soccer game – the options are unlimited. This is a voluntary KLU community service, so please plan your time and energy accordingly. We are looking for committed volunteers who are open to new friendships. To join the KLUb, just register via this link. Application deadlines are: August 1 (for the fall semester) or December 1 (for the spring semester). Printed application forms can be made available upon request.

KLUb buddy program events:

  • International Food Event (September/January)
  • German movie meetup (fall and spring semesters)
  • Visit to Hamburg's Christmas market (fall semester)

A certificate will confirm the scope and length of your voluntary commitment to the program. To receive one, each buddy needs to fill out an activity log. After the buddies hand in their activity logs at the end of the semester, the International Office will electronically issue a certificate to each student.
