Dear Student,

you have applied for studying Mathematics (Mathematik) or Informatics (Informatik) starting next semester at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). As soon as you have enrolled, you are a member of the student body (Fachschaft) Mathematik/Informatik. If you have applied for a different field, please visit and contact the student body of your field of study. We’d like to invite you to our so-called orientation days (O-Phase) for all future master freshmen, where you’ll get information about your studies and have a chance to meet your future fellow students. It will take place from

Tuesday, April 16th until Thursday, April 18th 2019.

If you didn’t receive the invitation via e-mail, you can find it here.

To make planning easier for us please register for some of the events on this site.
