Summer 2021 Welcome Sessions

The Summer 2021 Welcome Sessions will be held face-to-face, following all city- and campus-wide COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

Cycling in Madrid Río with Campus Ambassadors and Student Life staff

The mandatory Summer 2021 Welcome Sessions are scheduled for the first day of classes, Monday, May 24 at 9 a.m. for Summer I and Monday, Jun. 29 at 9 a.m. for Summer II in San Ignacio Hall (c/Amapolas, 3). You will have time to go to your classes right afterwards.

SLU-Madrid's Student Life staff and our Campus Ambassadors will serve as guides to help you adjust to life in Madrid as Billikeño. To ensure the safety of our campus community, the Welcome Sessions will be held in small groups of no more than six people or in other modified formats in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.

At the Welcome Sessions, you will meet your new classmates, learn about the resources available to you on campus, and begin to explore the city of Madrid.
