A manual for buddies

Buddy Program

A friendly face to show you around

TUM Campus Heilbronn has a Buddy Program for new students to help our newcomers to get settled in at TUM and in Heilbronn. The Buddy Program matches a group of first-year students with a TUM buddy who supports them during their first semester at TUM Campus Heilbronn. Buddies do an important job in ensuring that our new students have a successful and enjoyable start at TUM Campus Heilbronn.

Find a buddy

Your Buddy will be a friendly face, show you around campus, integrate you in his Buddy group and help you adjust to our campus and university life.


You will be part of a larger network of international and domestic students. You’ll connect at online and in–person events that are run and facilitated by your Buddy or/and the Buddy Program Coordinator. It’s a great opportunity to connect with students from around the globe, share your own culture and experiences, and learn about others.
