From Monday 21 until Friday 25 August students will get to know each other and the city of Maastricht. This week is about getting to know Maastricht, the city where you will meet new people and you will have to learn to find your way around again. Not just at the faculty, the library and the sports centre, but also the student and study associations and the area in and around Maastricht.
To make your transfer to the university, the faculty and the city of Maastricht as smooth as possible, we will be organising introduction days:
We also celebrate the new academic year with an event called 'Opening Academic Year'.
INKOM 2023 - from 21 until 25 August
The INKOM is the introduction week for all new students in Maastricht. Under the supervision of two senior students you will plunge in student life during the INKOM: you get to know your fellow students, the city, the academic and cultural life of Maastricht. The central area where especially the larger activities will take place is the Tapijn. Highlight for many students are the big parties in the MECC with well-known DJs such as Lucas & Steve. There are also many (new) activities that pay special attention to diversity and inclusiveness.

Both INKOM and the faculty introduction days are important!
During the INKOM, you’ll meet new people and you’ll have the opportunity to get acquainted with student associations, student life and the city of Maastricht. During the faculty introduction days, the main emphasis will be on your programme of study and getting acquainted with your fellow students, your mentor and the faculty.
Faculty introduction days
During the faculty introduction days, you’ll receive study-related information, and you’ll have the opportunity to get acquainted with the digital learning environment and your fellow students, but you’ll also learn all about the ins and outs of your faculty at Maastricht University.
Every faculty has their own programme. At most faculties, the introduction days are mandatory. You’ll receive a separate invitation to participate in the faculty introduction days. Some programmes also allow you to sign yourself up.
Please note: at most faculties, participation in the faculty introduction days is mandatory!
