O-Weeks Events

Due to the Corona situation, we are currently designing an O-week with events that meet the requirements of the university. This needs to be adjusted on an ongoing basis. So it's best to check back often, as there may have been possible changes.

IMPORTANT: Please register for the events in advance so that we can limit the number of participants. Form so that we can keep an eye on the number of participants.

Preliminary plan subject to possible restrictions, as at: 14.09.2021

Before the O-week

Early Bird Meeting

We want to organise a first get-to-know-you event even before the O-week begins. We hope that as many of you as possible will come. We want to get to know each other and play a few games together. We are looking forward to seeing you!

The event will probably take place in presence. Due to contact tracking and access restrictions, we therefore require mandatory registration via our Registration form.

Please keep in mind that this event will be held mostly in German!

Thursday, 23rd of September 2021, 3 pm

Campus Wechloy, Entrance hall

Mostly in German

There will also be a pub evening afterwards!

Pre-course Mathematics

For the winter semester 2021/22, a preliminary course will be organised in presence (Disclaimer: The course will be held in German!). In addition to learning the basics of mathematics, you may also get to know your first new fellow students! Unfortunately, the number of participants is very limited due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so register soon. All information about the pre-course can be found here:

27th of September until 8th of October 2021

During the O-week

O-Weeks Lounge

You can talk to us here at any time, whether you have questions or just want to talk to someone or maybe meet another first-year student. We also have a few games on hand at all times, so it's definitely worth coming by.

The O-Week Lounge is a hybrid event. You can visit it on site or online. Please watch our videos on how to use BigBlueButton before visiting online:

Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Hybrid: Online in BigBlueButton and on site in W02 1-143

Games afternoon

At the beginning of the O-week, we would like to invite you to a cosy games evening. This will take place on site in several rooms. Unfortunately, according to the distance regulations, the individual places have to be far enough apart so that normal board games are difficult. However, we have organised a programme so that you can get to know each other while having fun and playing games.

Alternatively, you are welcome to drop by our Online O-Week Lounge and play a variety of games online with other people. To do this, take a quick look at our BigBlueButton introduction so that you are familiar with the online conference system:

Campus tours

At the beginning of the O-week, we want to show you the university campus in Wechloy. During the one-hour tour, we will show you the rooms for the practical course, the PC room, the departmental library, our student council room and much more.

Due to hygiene and distance regulations, it is necessary to limit the number of participants and to collect their contact details. We will do both via a registration form, as for all other events in O-Week 2021. You can find it at HERE. Important: It is absolutely necessary to register in advance! Otherwise you will not be able to take part in the tour. Please note that you must wear a mouth-nose covering in every building on campus.

We will provide you with different time slots for the tour. Please indicate your first choice as well as your second choice when registering. You can choose from the following dates:

  • Registration deadline for Tuesday dates: Sunday, 10.10., 23:59 hrs.

Tuesday, 12th of October, 10 am -11 am., following the subject presentation for 2 Bachelor Physics

Tuesday, 12.10., 11 am -12 am

Thursday, 15.10., 10 am - 11 am

Campus Wechloy

"Speed Dating"

This is not about finding the love of your life (or maybe it is? If so, send us an invitation to the wedding!), but about getting to know other new students face-to-face, practically like speed dating works. We have prepared questions for you to answer each other. After that, we will switch until everyone is through. This way you will get to know a lot of other first-year students.

Alternatively, you can also just play games with others in the O-Week Lounge!

From 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm

Various rooms at the Wechloy campus

Meeting point: O-Week Lounge in W02 1-143

Barbecue evening (cancelled)

Unfortunately, the barbecue evening has to be cancelled due to the fact that the university has not approved the respective barbecue areas. We are currently planning an alternative programme. This will be published here.

Breakfast & timetable help

Creating a timetable can be difficult for many first-year students, especially if you are not yet familiar with Stud.IP and the organisation at the university. That's why we offer you a timetable help service where you can drop by online and ask us questions. This way, we can clarify with you individually which modules you should take (especially interesting for 2-subject Bachelor's degrees!) and how you can register for them in Stud.IP. We can also give you a first insight into the courses.

If the current situation with Corona allows it, we are planning to offer you a free breakfast so that you can start the day strengthened and be able to prepare your timetable without a grumbling stomach :-)

As an alternative to the timetable help, we recommend you take a look at our Stud.IP introduction. It also contains examples of how to create a timetable and enter it in Stud.IP, so take a look:

City Rally

On Tuesday afternoon we want to explore the city centre of Oldenburg with you. Even if you come from Oldenburg, there are certainly many things you can still learn. Anyway, you can get in touch with other first-year students from your degree programme during the rally. If possible, we will divide you into small groups with people from the same degree programme. You will also be accompanied by a student from your degree programme in a higher semester. You can also ask them questions about the university and your studies in general. However, the main goal is to answer the rally with questions about the city of Oldenburg.

From 3:00 pm until probably 6:00 pm, Open end afterwards.

Presentation by the jDPG

Disclaimer: This event will be held in German

The Oldenburg regional group of the young German Physical Society (jDPG) cordially invites you to our information and get-to-know event. We are a group of students who plan excursions, lectures and events around the topic of physics for you throughout the semester.

Are you perhaps unsure where you would like to work later after your physics degree? No problem, that's exactly why we organise the event "Physiker|In im Beruf".

Or would you like to get to know a particular company in the region better? Then take part in one of our excursions.

In a very relaxed atmosphere, we give you an insight into our regional group with this event. We have also prepared a few puzzles for you to puzzle over and discuss.

Do you have any questions in advance? Then don't hesitate and send us an email to:

Pub night

This event will only take place subject to implementation in relation to the Corona Pandemic.

For the traditional pub night day on Thursday we want to invite you to a pub night. Since our favourite pub is unfortunately too small for this, we will go to the larger Liner's at the harbour at Stau 34 and give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow students over a few beers. If possible, we will also provide you with snacks and a few games, so that nothing stands in the way of getting to know each other!

The pub night will start at 7pm, but you are welcome to join us if you like. Just remember to register in the registration form due to contact tracking. See you then!

From 19:00 (flexible, also later)

Info seminar on student financing

Disclaimer: This event will be held in German

At the end of the week, in addition to the central offers during the orientation week, we would like to take a closer look at the financing options available to you during your studies. We will explain topics ranging from part-time jobs and possible scholarships to special funding opportunities and everything you need to consider. We have professional help here, which means we can also answer any questions you may have. So if you are looking for clarity in your finances, then this is the right seminar for you!

From 12:00 noon until approximately 2:00 p.m.
