Hello new Lausanner!


Here is the link of the registration page of the next Welcome Week, organized by ESN Lausanne (ESN UNIL + ESN EPFL) and which will take place from September 13 to 19, 2021!


Before continuing to register, we ask you to read carefully the instructions below before going to the next page to register.


How does registration work?

The Welcome week will include many activities that will take place in-person during the day and in the evening.

You will be able to register for packs containing several activities or select the activities one by one "à la carte". If you choose a pack, you will also be able to add activities that are not included in this pack if there are still spots available.


To register, you will have to fill in this form and pay as soon as it opens. You can already fill in the fields, but you will only be able to pay from Wednesday September 1st at 13:00. You will get your place only when you have paid. Be careful: spots are limited, so first come, first served. The form may take a few minutes to fill out because we ask you to provide a lot of information, we therefore advise you to do it in advance. These data will of course be collected only by the organizing committee of the Welcome Week and will never be transmitted to third parties.


As soon as you have filled in everything, you can pay by credit card online or in cash at our ESN office in the Anthropole building of the University of Lausanne (ANT 1128.1) on Thursday, September 2 from 12:00 to 13:00 and Friday, September 3 from 12:00 to 13:00. If you pay by card, your purchases are reserved for 15 minutes before payment. If you choose the cash option, your place is reserved for 24 hours before payment.


Once your ticket is purchased, there is no refund possible. However, you can try to find someone to take you spot. If you sell your ticket to someone, please contact @thefroidmigros on Telegram or welcomeweek@lausanne.esn.ch per mail to let us know who is taking your spot. By the way, if you don't have the Telegram application, we advise you to download it as soon as possible because most of our communication will be done through this channel.


Here are some important information about the events and packages.

This team will eat the two remaining meals at other teams' places and will themselves welcome 2 teams to eat what they have cooked. All the teams you will encounter will be different which will allow you to spend the night with many lovely humans. What better way to get to know more people than around a meal and some drinks?

Price: You don't have to pay us anything but you will pay with the person who cooks with you what you buy for your guests.
