It is sufficient to wait for the orientation week (and a few tips from us). Since most events do not have a limited number of participants, you can register and cancel at any time.
Approximately 2 weeks before the start, we provide the final plan on our homepage under as well as on our Facebook page. It shows all activities and events of the week with time and place.
In the summer semester, only the Master's programs start and no BA programs, therefore there is always an orientation week in the summer semester only for the Master freshmen In the winter semester, however, both MA and BA courses start, so the orientation week is held together for all of them. But don't worry, we offer the possibility to get to know only your BA or MA fellow students, e.g. through the separate "Get Together" on the first evening.
The university has an underground car park which is freely accessible to all students who have a parking permit. Via the CampusPortalHisInOne you can download your individual parking permit in form of a parking ticket. On the following page you will find more information about this.
During the semester break, the garage is freely accessible to all students, but you should leave your parking permit clearly visible in your car.
Near the university there is also a paid parking garage (Nikolastraße 4, 94032 Passau) which is open to everyone. The university campus is only a few minutes walk from there.

How do I use the copiers and scanners at the university?
In order to use the copiers and scanners, which are freely available in the university buildings and libraries, you need your Campus Card. You have to top up your Campus Card with credit at specially marked replenishment terminals. This credit is independent of your canteen/cafeteria credit and is only valid for copies and printouts. Here you will find more information about how to use the Campus Card for printing, scanning and copying at the university.
Use the O-week to get to know your fellow students. Joining student groups such as the student council or cultural and sports groups will also enable you to get to know new people quickly. On the following page you will find an overview of the student groups at the university.
