Who we are

DSiA (Deutsche Studenten im Ausland) – or the German Students’ Association – was founded in 2013 as an initiative to support and represent the growing community of students with a German background living in Rīga. We aim to mediate and give guidance in university matters, as well as provide help with adapting to living abroad. We further strive towards hosting inclusive events for all students in order to facilitate intercultural exchange and provide opportunities to relax after a stressful study session.

As all our members are students in Rīga themselves, we aspire to bring variety into your everyday student life along the lines of the motto – For students, by students.

Event plan

Our events vary each month and are the result of personal motivation and teamwork. We thoroughly enjoy new ideas and people who want to actively get involved in designing their student life. We therefore highly encourage fellow students to come along to our open meetings and participate. 

An excerpt of our events can be seen below:

  •  Welcome Event
    A seasonal event once a semester, and a nice atmosphere in which to meet new people.
  • Tatort
    Sunday evening gatherings at Spiikiizi (Krišjāņa Valdemāra iela 17A) to watch Tatort, a German crime series. Episodes are screened live and are in German.
  • DSiA Parties: Spring Break and Fall Out
    Fellow German students and DJs will make you dance your worries away at Kaļķu vārti (Kaļķu iela 11A) in the Rīga Old Town.
  • Ice Hockey
    Come and enjoy watching the Latvian hockey team Dinamo Rīga play live with hundreds of other students at Arēna Rīga, and get to know the most popular Latvian national sport!
  • Clothing Donation
    Twice a semester you have the opportunity to donate clothes that have served their purpose to a local orphanage and other social projects.
  • Jazz & Jam
    Fellow students jazz and jam for you live - or are you perhaps a musician yourself?
  • Board Game Evenings
    Come together for a relaxing evening with board games and make new friends.
  • DSiA open meetings
    You are interested in getting involved? Do you have cool new ideas? Come and see whether you want to join our team. We look forward to meeting you!
