Buddy project

Buddy project – Do you need suppor-TO? is a welcome and support service for international students enrolled to a degree programme in UniTo and for international exchange students in mobility through the Erasmus+ programme or through a study abroad scheme.


A “Buddy” (a current student at UniTo) will assist international students in adapting in their new academic, cultural and linguistic environment before and on their arrival in Turin.

How to get in touch with a Buddy

If you are an international student who will enrol in a degree programme or an exchange student you will be contacted directly by a Buddy before your arrival in Turin. Once in Italy, you will be able to meet your Buddy and start your experience at UniTo. Getting in a touch with a Buddy will help you settle much easier into your new life in Turin!

Buddies will help you to:
  • make new friends
  • learn Italian language and culture
  • receive information and clarify doubts before your departure
  • receive information about the services offered by the University such as libraries, studying rooms, university canteens, sport activities, etc..
