The information point for international students, doctoral candidates and employees is open again. The Welcome Point’s Pavilion is located on the Small Court of the Main Campus at Krakowskie Przedmieście, and will remain open till the mid-October.

The Welcome Point (WP) is an information centre that provides practical instruction, advice and assistance to international students and employees of the University of Warsaw. The WP office is available all year round, both on the Main Campus at Krakowskie Przedmieście and on the Ochota Campus. Also, each new academic year the WP launches an extra branch, named a pavilion, to reach the largest possible number of newcomers from abroad. This year the pavilion is open between 19th September and 14th October, 9:00–16:30.


The WP pavilion can be visited any convenient time as it functions as a drop-in point. Traditionally, the Welcome Point staff is supported by Polish and international students of the University of Warsaw.


“The Welcome Point began its functioning in 2017 and this year we are celebrating the WP Hi5. Until now we have three offices: a regular point on the Main Campus, in the Ochota district there is another point that was opened in October 2020 in the Centre of New Technologies’ building, and our next branch at the Faculty of Economic Sciences that started in September 2021. The glass, tent-like structure of the pavilion has been made available to students and employees from abroad sixth time so far,” Katarzyna Basisty, the Welcome Point coordinator, said.


The Welcome Point cooperates with a number of the UW academic units, such as the Admissions Office, the International Relations Office, and the Office for Academic and Student Affairs. Its visitors are provided with practical information on legalisation of residence, health care, accommodation, as well as on many other student-related matters, including course registration, a university e-mail account, an electronic student ID card, a Polish language course, etc.
