Erasmus Student Networt (ESN)

Would you like to gain international experience before your Erasmus+ stay and meet fellow exchange students, maybe even incoming students from your future host country? Then you might be interested in joining the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).

The Erasmus Student Network of the University of Vienna cooperates with the International Office and participates in welcoming new exchange students to the University (e.g. the “ESN orientation week” in the beginning of each semester).

During the semester, ESN organizes events such as guided tours to cultural sights and companies, regular meetings, Welcome- and Farewell-Parties, excursions inside and outside of Vienna, movie nights and much more.

Moreover, ESN coordinates a Buddy System for exchange students. The buddies help the exchange students in their first days and during their whole stay in Vienna whenever the incomings have questions about life and studying in Vienna, are looking for the inside scoop on where to go in Vienna, or would simply like to hang out with locals.

If you are interested in joining the Erasmus Student Network or if you would like to register as a Buddy for incoming students, please visit
