International X-Mas Party | 8th December 2023

It's time again - our legendary International X-Mas Party is just around the corner!

Let's come together again to celebrate the cultural diversity at our university and share the Christmas spirit. For decades, the International X-Mas Party has been an absolute highlight at the University of Rostock and a must, especially for all international students.

The party is organised by the Rostock International House (RIH) in close cooperation with the Local Erasmus Initiative Rostock (LEI). This year it will take place in Peter-Weiss-Haus and promises not only a festive gathering with German Christmas traditions, but also an award ceremony, speeches by the Head of the university, a selected cultural programme and a varied selection of music. The whole event culminates in a dance party that will last until the early hours of the morning.

The celebration lives above all from your commitment! We encourage all international students to join us in organising this festive evening. Whether you shake a leg, make us laugh with a little sketch or theatre piece or rock the stage with your guitar - show your diverse talents and be creative.
Simply register your contribution in advance with the LEI: lei.rostockgmailcom

What to expect...

The Rostock International House and the Local Erasmus Initiative (LEI) invite everyone, especially international students, to an unforgettable live event at Peter-Weiss-Haus. Come along, bring your friends and let the X-Mas party be an unforgettable highlight together! Look forward to a special evening full of laughter, dancing and cultural diversity. As always, there will also be a festive buffet and dancing, dancing, dancing.
