ESN FINT offers a starting kit service for it's members, which is perfect for incoming international students who are only staying here for a short time. These kits consist of useful second-hand kitchen utensils which you can rent for a 5€ fee and a 20€ deposit. This means that you pay 25€ of which 20€ will be returned to you when you return the kit.

The starting kit includes the following items:

  • 1 pot
  • 1 frying pan
  • 2 large plates
  • 1 small plate
  • 1 deep plate
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 cup
  • 1 small mug
  • 1 glass
  • 8 pieces of cutlery (2 forks, 2 knives, 2 spoons and 2 teaspoons)
  • 2 sharp knives
  • 3 cooking utensils (spatula, whisk, ladle or similar)


You can pick up the starting kit from our office during starting kit service hours, which are listed on the front page.

Additionally, you can also rent ice skates and sledges in the wintertime.
