In 2021, our city will also hold the title of European Capital of Culture. Cultural events will certainly increase in the coming years and many other opportunities will take place with free access for the public.

Feel the vibration of the city!

Student life would be fun without a little fun from time to time. Of course, not in session or when you have classes from 8 in the morning. The core of the action is in the Student Complex, where most of the city's university dormitories are located. The student atmosphere is nowhere stronger than here. You can have your morning coffee at the nearby bars or lunch at student prices. In the evening, when you feel like going out, you can opt for the places in the complex or for those located on the banks of the Bega, 5-10 minutes walk from the student dormitories. Sometimes you can enjoy live music, admiring the flow of the river in the moonlight. Romantic, right?

If you prefer to dance, in the complex or on the streets of the city center, around the Union Square, you can find clubs for all musical tastes. There are many parties dedicated especially to students where you can benefit from various special offers. In short, you always have a place to go out for a drink or a dance. Fun is part of our lives, but we recommend that you always keep a healthy balance between study and "nightlife."

Visit architecture, museums and take a walk on Bega!

 Timișoara is known for its architecture. If you are a fan, we recommend the city center, with the three squares - Victoriei Square, Libertății Square, Unirii Square, but also Theresia Bastion, Nicolae Bălcescu Square or Sinaia Square (Alexandru Mocioni). We challenge you to discover the stories of the old buildings in the city. You can take a walk through the neighborhoods of Timisoara, which each have their own history. In the Initiation Week at UVT that precedes the beginning of the academic year, you will be able to participate in guided tours of Timișoara, to discover all the secrets of the city.

Walking on the banks of the Bega River can be a solution when you don't have a budget. It's free and you can always take your bike and go to Serbia on the specially designed bike path on the river bank, using even the loan system for bicycles or electric scooters provided by the city's public transport system, free of charge, based on subscription. Also, the public transport system in Timisoara has in its composition also boats, with the help of which you can see the whole city directly from the Bega canal.

Museums often have interesting exhibitions and, because you are a student, you will benefit from a discount on the entrance ticket. You can visit the Art Museum of Timisoara, the National Museum of Banat or the Museum of the Banat Village, but also more unique locations, such as the Museum of the Communist Consumer or the Memorial of the Revolution of December 1989. I've attached a list of them to make them easier to find.

Go to America one summer!

If you've ever wanted to go to America, studying can be your time. There are several organizations that can make the "American dream" a reality and support students to go and work in America during the summer. You can only participate in these programs if you are a student.
