Buddy Programme

Are you a first year student at the University of Luxembourg? Do you want to find your way round the University? Do you want to discover Luxembourg? Apply for a ‘Buddy Guide’ today.

What is the Buddy Programme?

The Buddy System pairs a 2nd or 3rd year student (Buddy Guide) with a first year student (Buddy) to help them settle in to life at the University of Luxembourg.

Note: some fields of study have study-specific programmes tailored for their first-year students: if you want their support, please contact them directly: 


What does a Buddy Guide do?

The Buddy Guides are also students and have already experienced their first year at the University. The Buddy Guides know what’s what on and off campus. They are there to help and guide you and to make your first months at the University of Luxembourg as welcoming as possible.


Want to join?

If you would like to join the programme as a Buddy or Buddy Guide please join the Buddy System platform! (Caution: registrations are only possible with your addresses); note: if you are a regular student (i.e. doing their whole programme studies here, please choose the option "Freemover"). We will send out a call for Buddy Guides at the beginning of the semester, i.e. you will only find a match after your arrival.

Please understand that it is not always possible to match you with someone from the same field of study.
