Welcome to Paderborn
We are glad that you made the right decision by choosing Paderborn and now we would like to welcome you in the name of the student council (“Fachschaft”) for math and computer science. The student council is a group of volunteers, who represent the students within the university. We try to help you with all sorts of issues that come up during your studies. You can always come by in our office and ask for help, even outside the welcome week.
On this page we collect some information to get you started. Some important links are shown in the green box on the right.
Master Info Book
We have compiled all Information you may need at the beginning of your studies into a booklet called Master Info Book (MIB). The current edition can be downloaded from the green box.
We also have some printed MIBs in our office. You can visit us in E1.311 to get a printed copy for free.
Your University Mail
Your IMT account also functions as the primary communication channel from the university. You can access the emails at https://webmail.upb.de/login.php.
You should check your mailbox regularly!
The IMT also provides information in German on how to add your IMT-mail to your mail client: https://hilfe.uni-paderborn.de/Mail_einrichten
All new students do have the possibility to get to know the University of Paderborn one week before the courses start.
The welcome week for international students is organised by the International office and the foreign students union.
Students from Germany are invited to an informal and short orientation day on Monday and encouraged to join the Non-Bachelor specific orientation week program. More information in the schedule below.
