Purple Introduction Week 2024
26 Aug 2024 09:00 - 23:00 CEST
If you start your study at Fontys in September, you will start with a super cool introduction week: Purple! September marks the start of the new academic year. We will host the Purple Introduction Week for all new first-year students from 26 to 30 August 2024.

During this week, getting to know each other is key. Getting to know your classmates, your study programme, the city where you will be studying, and, of course, Fontys. We plan to make Purple Introduction Week 2024 as beautiful and fantastic as every year.

We close the introduction week with a BANG... On Thursday we organise Purple Festival from 14:00h to 23:00h. The entire Fontys community comes together at Leijpark. Participants from all cities of all introductory programmes come together to the Purple Festival and enjoy the artists and activities spread over the different stages all day long. The transport from and to the festival is arranged by (shuttle) bus, public transport or bike (Tilburg). This is how you close the introduction week in style with a party that you will talk about with your new friends, classmates and teachers for a long time to come.
