Orientation Days 2024 for New Master’s Students

!!! UPDATE !!!

Because of low attendance we have changed the plans for the two days.

There will be an unofficial pub crawl tonight (Thursday 11th April), there will be people standing by the fountain at the Universitätsplatz at 8 p.m.

Tomorrow (Friday 12th April) there will be a condensed presentation from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The game night will be postponed to next week (exact date will be announced here), we hope to see more of you so you can properly socialise with one another.

Any updates will be communicated here!

Are you beginning your Master’s at the Faculty of athematics and Computer Science or at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy? We welcome you to Heidelberg University and invite you to the orientation days organised by us – the student council MathPhysInfo.
Organizational presentations provide you with the information necessary for your everyday student life (How does Wi-Fi work on campus? How do I put together my timetable?), long-term planning and free time activities in and around Heidelberg. Most importantly, game nights and pub crawls give you the opportunity to meet fellow students and future friends.

Where and when?

We have two orientation days that will take place on Thursday, 11th April and Friday, 12th April. They will take place at the university on the campus Im Neuenheimer Feld. The exact locations can be found in the timetable below.


To take part in the orientation days, no registration is required. Just join us on the first day. Even joining us later is alright. If you miss the orientation days, do not worry. We will be uploading slides and other information you need.
