HelpingHand is a group of students who have set themselves the task of looking after foreign students at the HTWG Konstanz. We are a team of local students who had to find their way around during their semester abroad and know how important it is to get in touch with locals in order to quickly orient themselves in their new surroundings, make friends, have fun and learn more about the other culture. In order to pass on our positive experiences and impressions to you, we have founded HelpingHand. We especially support exchange students in the initial phase with bureaucratic matters and of course with getting to know the region and the nightlife in Constance. We want to make it easier to settle down in Konstanz and, together with the staff of the International Office, prepare the orientation days at the beginning of the semester. At the beginning and of course also during the semester, we organize pub tours, excursions, joint activities such as city tours, excursions, visits to the cinema, baking cookies or an international dinner.

If you are interested, please send us an e-mail to and we will immediately add you to our mailing list. It is also possible to join during the semester.

Further information about HelpingHand can also be found on our Flyer.
