- What time will the freshmen weekend start on the 15th of August?
- All freshmen are expected to be present in Delft in the morning on this date. You will be brought back to Delft on the 18th of August, in time for the start of the OWee.
- I’m an international student and coming from abroad, when should I be in Delft?
- It can be quite the hassle to move over all your stuff to Delft. As the weekend starts quite early on the 15th of August, you can arrive in Delft by Wednesday, August 14th at the latest. However, it can be nice to settle a bit before starting the freshmen weekend, so it is recommended to arrive in Delft on August 13th, or before.

- You will receive more information after the signups close. We will send everyone an email towards the beginning of August.

During the OWee you will get to know the student associations of Delft, the main goal of the freshmen weekend is for you to get to know other Aerospace students.
- Is it an issue if I can’t be present all days of the freshmen weekend?
