Distribution, raffle and sale of the first year backpack




The KIT Career Service is pleased to welcome the many new students at KIT with the welcome gift - the first year backpack!

We will inform you by e-mail as soon as the backpack can be handed out again (status: April 26nd, 2021).

Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we are currently unable to give out backpacks to first-year students. In the summer semester we had found a way to distribute the first year backpacks while taking current safety and hygiene measures into account. We were pleased that the changed concept of the first year backpack distribution in summer was so well accepted and that many new students at KIT received their backpack with useful tips and information about KIT, the start of their studies, and the give-aways of this year's backpack partners. Unfortunately, we cannot use the model from the summer semester in the current winter semester and will inform you here as soon as the current situation allows us to distribute it again. All first-year students can find more information for the ditsribution here.



All KIT students who have a valid student email address can, with a bit of luck, win one of the first year backpacks from various campaigns. Just check our Facebook and Instagram channels regularly.


Due to the current situation, we are unfortunately unable to sell backpacks at the moment.

We are very pleased that the first year backpack has been very well received by many students and staff.

When the first year backpacks were distributed in 2018 and 2019, there were a few backpacks left over. For this reason, we offer to purchase the backpack for KIT students, doctoral candidates, trainees, and employees.

If you are interested in purchasing a KIT first semester backpack model 2018 or 2019, you can register with us using the following form. As soon as the current situation allows us to sell again, we will contact you with individual appointments and carry out the sale within the framework of the safety and hygiene rules (23.02.2021).
