In the week of September 2, The Hague University of Applied Sciences welcomes the new students. With the festive start of the academic year on Thursday, September 5 we will celebrate this moment! 

We start at 3 p.m. with the big THUAS Information Market where you can get acquainted with more than 60 student associations and organisations, sports clubs, going out, services from The Hague University of Applied Sciences, great discounts and much, much more. 

On stage, (student) DJs play the latest hits and student band The Storks plays their latest repertoire. Naturally, the Executive Board will give a welcome speech and we will toast the new academic year together with all students!
