Join Tor Vergata’s Buddy Programme

buddy programme

The Buddy programme foresees a support and a welcome from the enrolled students to the new students in collaboration with the Welcome Office.

The first months are the most challenging: students need to familiarize with a new academic context, non-resident students with a new city and international students also with a culture and traditions different from their own.

A warm welcome can make the difference

If you want to support a new student in overcoming the same difficulties you might have faced at your arrival, you can apply to become a buddy, who will be an important reference during the first adaption period.

What does a Buddy do

  • He/she contacts the students whom he/she is matched after their arrival
  • He/she participates in cultural events and activities addressed to buddies and new students
  • He/she helps new students become familiar with the campus and its facilities
  • He/she facilitates the understanding of the didactic organization: structure of the academic year, lectures, exams
  • He/she helps students get to know the city and its opportunities
  • He/she addresses the student to the competent offices for specific issues

Why to become a Buddy

  • You will get to know different cultures of the world without moving away from home
  • You will make new friends
  • You will improve your English language knowledge and be able to practice other foreign languages
  • You’ll develop skills and contacts which will turn out to be useful in the job market 

Who can apply to become a Buddy

Students regularly registered in the academic year 2020/2021 at  Tor Vergata University of Rome, who will continue their studies at the University of “Tor Vergata” for the a.y. 21/22.

The Buddy will support students enrolled at the first year in the a.y. 2021/2022

How to apply

It is possible to apply by filling out the following online form below (available in Italian and in English)

Duration of the programme

The programme has a duration of four months (based on the opening of enrollments and/or the beginning of the lessons).


The Welcome Office will support you in acquiring the necessary skills to exercise at best your role as a Buddy, will assist you throughout the period in which you will volunteer and will invite you to take part in meetings, games and events (online or in presence) in which you will strengthen your relationship with the new students.

Informative material will be sent by e-mail.
The Buddies will be matched with new students on the basis of the attendance to the same study programme and of personal interests, revealed through the form.

Tor Vergata celebrates World Day for Cultural Diversity

World day for cultural diversity

In 2001, UNESCO adopted the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity and in December 2002, the UN General Assembly, in its resolution 57/249, declared May 21 to be the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, affirming culture’s contribution to the three dimensions of sustainable development, acknowledging further the natural and cultural diversity of the world, and recognizing that cultures and civilizations can contribute to, and are crucial enablers of, sustainable development.

CUG – the Single Guarantee Committee of the Tor Vergata University of Rome – in order to celebrate this valuable and important day properly – although fairly limited due to pandemic conditions – is proposing to realize an online project. But we need your collaboration to make this beautiful day enjoyable while appreciating the cultural diversity surrounding us.

Call for Artists and Keepers

We would like to invite Tor Vergata’s students to propose an artist or an important artwork from their land of origin, one that they can introduce on May 21st through a personal interview to the artist or to a person strictly connected to the artwork; the interviews and the artistic elements will be presented in a virtual event on May 21st.

This event would be an opportunity for all of us to appreciate all the colours of cultural diversity in unique personal stories/experiences. The format and the schedule of the event will be furtherly defined according to the number and kind of proposals received.

Specifications: Kinds of cultural elements and creative arts fields

The person to be interviewed has to be directly connected to the artwork (ie, the director or a keeper in a museum) or a publicly recognized artist in creative fields, such as: painting, architecture, sculpture, literature, music, performing and cinema. Hybrid and/or other artistic fields not mentioned in this list will also be welcome.
