Every year the UIT is organized by the UITboard commissioned by Utrecht University and University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.The UITboard changes every year and consists of six older year students, they set aside a whole year of their studies to organise the UIT. These students are working a whole year full enthousiasm to put a great introductionweek for prospective students from Utrecht. They start in November. In May an additional seven students, called 'eventmanagers', join the board to support them in the last 3 months. Towards the start of the UIT an additional 700 volunteers join the board to make it an fantastic week. Those volunteers consist of 'mentors' and 'crew'. Mentors escort their group of students around the city during the UIT and crew members are helping to realise this amazing week during the UIT.
