Start of Studies
We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam for the summer semester 2023. On this page you will find all important information about the start of your studies.
Getting to know the university and Potsdam
Come by and discover the sights of Potsdam or meet for a coffee in the city centre. We would also like to invite you to take a look at the campus. Feel free to sit down at the Casino, the student pub on campus, and exchange ideas with students. Or come to the campus garden, a green community project in the middle of campus.

The central contact point for questions and concerns regarding the administration of the study period is the Study and Examination Service. For example, if the Campus.card is on strike, leave of absence semesters are requested or there are questions about certificates.
