Welcome to our homepage

We are glad you found our site!

We are the representative of the students in the faculty of mathematics and computer science and the faculty of physics and astronomy.

Our main purposes are to …

  1. … represent the students in different university committees and communicate with professors.
  2. … help, whenever they encounter difficulties during their studies.
  3. … organize events for the students of faculties such as the introduction to studying at Heidelberg University each October, a newcomer meeting at the beginning of each semester in particular for international students or one of the biggest student parties in Heidelberg.

If you are looking for information about studying at Heidelberg University, please contact the International Relations Office. They can also give you information on requirements for the enrolment and the application process. Please note that only the master’s degree in physics and the master’s degree in scientific computing are offered in English, while all other courses of our two faculties are mainly taught in German language.

We can answer questions about the particular study environment and student life in Heidelberg. You can contact us at fachschaft@mathphys.fsk.uni-heidelberg.de.

In case you are in Heidelberg, we are happy to welcome and advise you. You can reach us at Im Neuenheimer Feld 205, room 01.301.

Events for Newcomers

For all newcomers in a master's degree program at the departments for mathematics and computer science as well as for physics and astronomy, an information session and a pub crawl are organized by the student representatives of Fachschaft MathPhysInfo, in order to make the start of the newcomers' studies in Heidelberg easier. The information session will cover details and tips on living in Heidelberg and studying at said departments. Afterwards there will be room for personal questions and socializing over coffee and cake. The pub crawl will be another opportunity to meet each other and get to know Heidelberg.

Computer Science Students' General Assembly on June 28th 2017 (InfoVV)

Date: June 28th 2017, 2 p.m. sharp, Konferenzraum 5. OG (Conference Room 5th floor) at Mathematikon (INF 205)

As representatives of all Computer Science students at Heidelberg University we discuss and pass resolutions on how to influence curriculum and teaching in order to help implement improvements for all students of our faculty. Therefore, we regularly organize the Computer Science Students' General Assembly (InfoVV from German Informatikvollversammlung), at which participating students discuss the latest topics regarding teaching and their studies at our university. The discussions are meant to give you a platform to share your opinion about the setting of your studies in Heidelberg. Subsequent to the councils (topics will be chosen by all present students), you are invited to participate in a Computer Science Students only Fachschaftssitzung (the German word for our regular assembly), where we will explain topics more intensively than usual and where you'll gain the right to vote by simply being there. Raise your voice and decide about the circumstances of your studies in Heidelberg!
We will provide free snacks and drinks during the assembly and have a small BBQ at our summer party in the evening, together with our friends from the physics assembly.

We're looking forward to your numerous attendance and are happy to answer your questions in advance, during the breaks at the assembly or at the summer party.

Please note that the assembly will generally be held in German. We will, however, encourage our council moderators to accommodate students who only speak English in a sensible way at their respective meetings. If you have any further questions regarding this issue, please contact us in advance at smayer[at]mathphys.stura.uni-heidelberg.de!


Mathematikon Open House

Open house at Mathematikon on July 8th, organized by the Faculty for Mathematics and Computer Science and the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing, IWR. MathPhys will provide catering and is looking for your help. Volunteers will be provided with free food and drinks at the event and a pair of awesome MathPhys-Shades. Please contact us at [1] or any other preferred way! We're looking forward to working with you. It's going to be fun!
