Student Engagement

event A traditional event

Welcome Week

Welcome Week is always organized at the beginning of the academic year, with the help and involvement of senior students (Student Ambassadors). Through this period, all first year students take part in the orientation program that introduces them to their academic curricula, student services, student government, internships, rules and regulations, dress code, on campus facilities, lecturers, staff, colleagues and many more, everything with a mix of social activities which are meant to connect all American Hotel Academy community members. For the existing students it is a “welcome back” to school when the curricula for the next academic year and the new lecturers are introduced.

Resources and Online Access


The Academy has a library located on the ground floor. All of the material relevant to courses taught is managed by the Library and is available in electronic format. Most electronic resources are available both on and off campus. During the Orientation students are informed about the opening hours, resources available and group study room availability.

Student Email

The Academy offers custom email accounts for all students. Having separate, professional emails will enable students to better organize their academic activity. During the Orientation students are informed about the set-up & functionality of their inbox.

Online Campus

OnlineCampus is an online platform that keeps the student connected to all the important information and events taking place in the Academy. Through OnlineCampus students can have quick 24/7 access to news, schedule, grades, courses, attendance, resources, handouts, online library, information about internships, forms, faculty, student handbook and academic rules & regulations.


Student Counselling

This activity provides a safe place, separate from the student’s daily life, where they can explore issues or feelings which are causing them distress. The counsellor will relate to you in a supportive and purposeful manner and assist you in the task of finding their own way forward. She offers you understanding, a chance to be listened to, valued and accepted in a non-judgmental way.

To whom?

This activity is available to any student experiencing emotional or psychological difficulties relating to academic, personal or social problems.
Regardless of the student’s background and whatever difficult situation you may find yourself into, we are here to offer you both space and our full support, in a confidential environment, to work through these difficulties.

Student Government

All for one and one for all!
Student Government is an entity created by the students for the students with the purpose to facilitate a close connection between them, the faculty and the administrative staff. The aim is to provide opportunities for shared governance, career and personal development, as well as social events and activities, from thematic parties to community service and assistance.

All the other students vote for their preferred candidate after attending the presidential debate, during which each candidate shares his/her vision and governing plans as well as answers questions from the audience. Any student can be part of American Hotel Academy’s Student Government! Anyone who would like to get involved and make a difference gets the chance to apply for a member position in one of the departments.
