Welcome Point officially opened!


The Welcome Point is the central information service point for international students – both those who come to the UW for one semester exchange and to pursue the whole cycle of their studies. We cooperate closely with the Admissions Office, the International Relations Office, the Office for Student Affairs and other University units to provide you with relevant and up-to-date information in matters related to the University, student activities, and everyday life.
Our team is here to welcome and assist you at the beginning of your stay in Warsaw. At the beginning of the coming academic year, from 15th September to 15th October, our office will be located on the main campus. We hope to make your transition to UW and life in Warsaw as smooth as possible! Feel free to visit us at our office. We are open from Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM.
We will be glad to answer your questions concerning studies at UW and life in Poland as well as to help you find the way to other University offices.
