Orientation Unit

You can get the slides from the orientation event for summer semester 2022 here.

Info for the orientation unit for the bachelors programs are available in german.

At the beginning of every semester, the student body organizes a orientation unit (OU) for new master students.

The most important goals of the OU are:

  • meet your peers – without friends, studying is hard!
  • get to know the unis facilities – so that you can find your way around!
  • take away the panic – we are all just humans!
  • answering you questions – so that you are well prepared!
  • have fun – of course!

During OU you will meet peers of higher semesters who will tell you anything you need to know. We will show you the campus and you will have plenty of time to get to know your peers.

Summer Semester 2022

Welcome to the University of Bonn!

We are happy to welcome you at the University of Bonn and hope that you arrived safely.
You probably still have a lot of unanswered questions. Maybe even some, which you didn’t know you had. For example: What does ”c.t.” mean? How do I register for a class? How do the exercises and the practice sheets work?
As the student body we want to help answer all these kinds of questions. Even though our lectures don’t directly start at the 1st of April, it is still helpful to be here a bit earlier! We invite you to our orientation day on

Saturday, 02.04.22 from 12 o’clock
in Friedrich-Hirzebruch-Allee 6

If you are not able to attend this orientation, that is not a problem. We will be live-streaming the information part of the event, so you don’t miss anything. You can also always visit us on any other weekday in the Computer Science building (Friedrich-Hirzebruch-Allees 8) in room 0.019 (student body office), which is located in the foyer.

Considering the pandemic, we will only allow access to the orientation for people who are fully vaccinated, who are recovered from COVID-19 or have an official negative test (3G). We will also enforce the mandatory use of face masks in the building. So please bring the corresponding certificate, a photo ID and a FFP2 mask or a medical mask along.

During the orientation we will present you with the most important information, so that you can easily conquer the first few weeks of the semester. Furthermore you will have the possibility to meet new people and make new acquaintances during the orientation. This is essential for your studies!

As an added bonus, we will hold a board game evening on the 7th of April starting from 18 o’clock! We hope to see you there!
