INKOM 2023: Wherever You Go!
Don't miss it, the INKOM 2023! This annual introduction week is one of the biggest events in Limburg and a must for new students at Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and VISTA College.
The INKOM marks the start of a special period in your life: your time as a student. You will meet many new people and discover the lovely city of Maastricht and, of course, student life. You get to know sports, cultural and student associations. And basically, it’s just a lot of fun.
What to expect? Cultural workshops, city walks, an open-air cinema and workouts at the University Sports Centre (USC). But there’s more. On Wednesday, John Tana will take the stage and on Tuesday and Friday, the programme will end with a smashing party at the MECC, with performances by various artists such as Lucas & Steve.
This year's INKOM will take place from 21 to 25 August 2023. Apart from offering study information and a wide range of fun activities, the INKOM will also deal with matters such as social and sexual safety.
