TUMi Event Program

TUMi offers you a wide range of events. Join us during the Orientation Weeks before the semester begins to receive support with starting out at TUM. The TUMi program will then continue throughout the lecture period.

Orientation Weeks

Are you coming to Munich for the first time and keen to find out what you need to look out for? Would you like to get to know Munich and your fellow students? If so, the orientation weeks have just the right events for you!

They are held at the beginning of each semester and aimed at all exchange students. Participation in the Orientation Weeks is not compulsory. Simply register for the events you are interested in.

Registration for the events of the orientation weeks will only start when the events have been published in the TUMi app and only when the TUMi office hours of the orinetation weeks begin.

The preliminary program for the orientation weeks in the winter semester 2020/21 is now available here.

  • Help with your first steps after arrival (registration, residence permit, enrollment, public transport, etc.) as well as an introduction to the libraries, the campus, various information centers and many other facilities.
  • A cultural program to help you to get to know Munich and its surroundings. Whether museum visits, excursions or parties – there's something for everyone.
  • Meet many other international students who are facing exactly the same challenges.


Registration for TUMi events is very simple.

Events without a participation fee (e.g. online event in orientation weeks): You register online in the TUMi app.

Events with a particpation fee (e.g. excursion): You simply come to our office during office hours and pay for your participation.

How do I know how much an event costs? This will be mentioned in the event description in the TUMi app.


We only accept cash for payments.

As the number of participants in each event is limited, the “first come, first serve” principle applies. 

Often, places are left the week before an event. If you are very keen on attending the event, please drop by at our office the week before (ideally the Friday before an event on a weekend).

Participation in all TUMi events is voluntary. Legal liability provisions apply. Accident coverage through the Bayerische Landesunfallkasse is therefore not provided.

You may withdraw your confirmation of participation in an event until the last Monday before the event in question only. If you would like to withdraw at a later stage, please find somebody to replace you. Different registration rules may apply for events involving an overnight stay.

Reimbursement of your attendance fee in the event of illness will only be provided if you submit a doctor's certificate within two weeks.

As many events are subsidized by TUM, participation is limited to TUM students only.

TUMi reserves the right to use event photos for internal purposes (showcase, website, fliers, etc.). Please let us know if you have any objections.


Discover the culinary variety of the world during the TUMi Länderabend!

Every other Monday from 7 pm, you are invited to the TUMi Länderabend at KHG (Karlstraße 32, 80333 München). Every Länderabend is organized by students from a different country or region.

The Länderabend also serves as a meeting point for international and German students alike. 

Entry is free and registration is not required.

For details, please check the TUMi-App.

Do you want to host a Länderabend and present the cuisine of your country? Write to laenderabend@esn-tumi.de.

TalkTUM[i:] Language Café

The TalkTUM[i:] Language Café provides an opportunity to speak foreign languages and meet other students. It also allows international students to improve their German in an informal setting over free coffee and cake!

We are always looking for native speakers who are interested in presenting their own language and moderating a table. If you are interested, please e-mail us at: tumi@zv.tum.de (Munich City Campus, Weihenstephan) or student-exchange@in.tum.de (Garching).

You do not need to register, you just come to the loaction.


As a measure to prevent the further spread of the corona virus, there currently are no TUMi events and therefore also no language cafés. Once these restrictions haven been lifted, the language cafés will be held during the lecture period in the following locations:

  • Munich City Campus: every Wednesday from 4 - 6 pm at StuCafé Audimax. 
  • Garching: every Wednesday from 3 to 5.30 pm at Magistrale MI (Informatics building). Further Information.
  • Weihenstephan: every Wednesday from 2.30 to 4.30 pm at geniessBar (Maximus-von-Imhof Forum 3, Freising).
