Meet all your fellow exchange students over delicious Saturday brunch!
The Incoming Office invites exclusively the incoming exchange students for a Welcome Brunch on a Saturday of each semester. You will receive an invitation by email during the first week of the semester.

After the brunch, the ESN (Erasmus Student Network) organizes a Treasure hunt for the students to get familiar with the campus and its surroundings.

Modify your Learning Agreement (LA)

In case you need to modify your Learning Agreement ( i.e. you have to select different classes due to course overlap, timetable changes or other reasons), you have the first two weeks of the semester to make the changes.

Incoming office will send a reminder with the exact deadline for submitting the modified LA.

After the deadline, no deleting or adding of study courses will be accepted!

Please use the document titled “During the Mobility” to request your changes (or use your home university template, if required).

Same principles apply as to the original LA: the document must be typed (no handwritten version is accepted) and you must include course codes – you can find the course codes in the course list (programme) on the website of your study programme (not on Moodle). Make sure to enrol for at least 20 ECTS and select the majority of courses from the study field you are nominated in.

Steps to follow:

  1. Check your timetable (pay attention to potential course overlaps and the teaching language);
  2. Once you are 100% sure which courses you finally want to take, fill out the changes in the document During the Mobility. Make sure to sign the document!
  3. Send the modifications to the Contact person at your faculty (see section Contact persons at faculties)
  4. Once the faculty approves your modifications, you will receive the document back with the Receiving institution’s signature.
  5. Now you have to send your modified Learning Agreement for approval to your home university.
    If your home university does not approve your course choice before our modification deadline, we cannot guarantee that you will be able change your courses after the deadline. Any changes after the deadline are exceptional and require special approval.
  6. When your home university accepts the changes and signs the form, send the fully approved document with all signatures to the Incoming office at incoming@uni.lu.



Your student card allows you to make photocopies and to print on campus. At the beginning of each semester, the university gives you 12.50 € on your student card for printing.
Then, you can top up your student card with 5, 10, 20 or 50 €. You can make an online payment with a Visa credit card or a MasterCard in your Guichet Etudiant.

Student canteens and cafeterias

There are many canteens and cafeterias available for you on the campuses.

You will use your student card to pay for meals in canteens and cafeterias; students have discounted prices on all meals.

The student card is valid in our canteens from the first day of the semester.

Please note that you can add credit to your “Restopolis” account by cash only on a cash desk in any canteen. You can also check the amount on your Restopolis account in Guichet Etudiant.

We do not recommend students to add high sums on their Restopolis account at once, because the reimbursement of your unused credit at the end of your stay is not possible!
