New at Saarland Informatics Campus?
Starting your studies can be quite exciting. Finding your way around after enrollment is not always easy: To make it easier for you, you will find all the important steps on your way to us here - from enrollment to the start of the semester. The study coordinators, the student council and students from higher semesters are always happy to help you get started and are always open to questions and personal concerns.
First of all, you need your university ID to get in touch with us, or other first year students.
On our student Discord server you can get to know your fellow students and exchange ideas with students of higher semesters - even before you have your admission! Whether you want to prepare for your studies, learn together, play, make music or just have a chat - we are here for you!
Every year, students from higher semesters organize the Maths Prep Course, and the the Student Council organizes the Student Introduction Period, StEP for short. Together, they help new students of computer science and related courses to get started in their studies. Highly recommended!
This page of the University IT Center explains how to set up your personal access.
Here you will find all the information you need to start your first semester successfully.
From pre-courses to timetable creation or even tips on student financing and the mentor programs, you will find the information here:
You need a campus map or want to know what you can eat in the cafeteria? The university app offers you that and much more.
Download: At the moment the android app is being reworked.
Finally, you should take a look at our page with information about the current semester. Here you will find all welcome events / kick-off events but also introduction videos for the offered courses.
