Frequently asked questions for KEI-lopers

Can the KEI-week be seen as an initiation?

No, not at all! You should see the KEI-week primarily as something that is just fun to do. It is a week full of information, activities and parties. Signing up for the KEI-week does not mean you are obligated to go to the events. You are free to go wherever you want, and join the events you like.

Where can I find information about the KEI-week?

Most of the information is available on this website. Furthermore, updates and news is shared via Facebook,  TwitterSnapchat (KEI-week) and Instagram.

If you still have a question you can email it to info@keiweek.nl.

I’m allergic to certain foods, is it still possible to join the food-related events?

Of course we would still like you to join the food events. Just email evenementen@keiweek.nl with the specifics and we will make sure to arrange something for you!

I am arriving in Groningen on Wednesday, can I still participate?

You defenitely can! Just buy your ticket online via the website and come get your wristband at the KEI-building.

What does ‘KEI’ stand for?

KEI stands for “Kommissie Eerstejaars Introduktie” , which can be translated as “The commission for the introduction of first-year students”. The KEI-week is the general introduction week for all incoming higher education students, both at the University of Groningen and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. The KEI-week is the oldest, largest and cheapest introduction week in the Netherlands.

Who organizes the KEI-week?

The KEI-week is organized by the Board of Directors consisting of 7 students. They are supported by the Supervisory Board and, starting in May, the Event Managers assist Board of Directors with their tasks. During the KEI-week 200 KEI-crew members and 900 KEI-leaders are helping to make the KEI-week possible.
