Become a Buddy!

Living in another country is exciting and promises new, intercultural adventures. But sometimes, just looking for the next Post Office or registering at the local council can turn into adventures that you would have liked to have done without. It doesn’t have to be like that!

The International Office introduces students from Greifswald to international students as “Buddies”, to help those who have come to our small port town from far and wide. You too can be part of this project! Whether it’s a borrowed bike, an invitation to a party or accompanying someone to the library, we can all help turn Greifswald into a home port for international guests.

We are expecting over 60 participants for the summer schools in Greifswald and more than 60 exchange students for the winter semester. Become part of Greifswald’s international community and welcome our visitors!
