Register for First Semester Events

Because of the pandemic, we are only able to offer events with preceding registration.
Therefore, please register as early as possible for these events.
We can’t guarantee you will be allowed to participate if you didn’t register beforehand.

You can register here for our events.

Telegram Group

We have a Telegram Messenger group for First Semester Students. In this group, we help you to stay up-to-date.
Additionally, you can ask us anything there. Just join us at this Telegram group.

Currently, most of the content is posted in German. Feel free to ask any question in English. We will then answer in English, too.

Public Transport Ticket – VVS Semester Stamp

If you are enrolled, you can get the free semester stamp at the SSB online store. Using this stamp, you are allowed to use the local public transport (bus, tram and local train within VVS network) in the evenings from 6 p.m. on and on weekends for free. (You can click here onto “Ticketshop”. Then, you need to enter your data at a form which is also available in English.)

Alternatively, you can buy the semester ticket which allows you to travel around the clock using the same bus, tram and train network of VVS. (At this link, “Ticket direkt kaufen” means “buy the ticket now”.)

The Student Representatives Group

We tool are students in the Department of Computer Science. In our free time, we volunteer to provide fun events for others (and for us too 😉 ) to make everyday life at university a little more relaxed and to keep the “studying” part of our studies stress-free.

On the one hand, we organise all kinds of events, for example board game nights, LAN parties, barbecues or beer pong/flunky ball events. On the other hand, we offer services like sharing of past exams or 3d printing. Additionally, you can ask us anything. And even if we don’t know the answer, we can usually direct you to the person who knows it.

All this is obviously only possible with many helping hands. Therefore, if you want to participate, please get in touch. For example, you can ask in the Telegram group about the topic you want to help with.

Of course, all our services and events were started by someone. If you have any idea for e.g. an event that does not exist yet, you are welcome to share this idea with us. And ideally, you would also plan and run e.g. your imagined event with us. We are always happy to offer something new to our community. 🙂
