German universities, including OVGU and its faculties, administer and adhere to strict deadlines. There are deadlines to register for various types of seminars, scientific projects, exams, recognition of previous earned credits, re-registration for each semester, and more. There are no exceptions if deadlines are not met.

Students are expected to work independently and find the information they need on their own, using the resources provided on the OVGU websites and various platforms in order to find them.

Students should read their study and exam program regulations (also known as SPO, English courtesy translations can be found on our website in the Students' Documents section) in order to find out how their study program is run, and which formalities and procedures students must observe and adhere to in order to successfully complete their studies.

In order to receive housing on campus, students are required to fill out an application and submit it to the Student Union (Studentenwerk) six weeks in advance, even if you do not yet have an admission confirmation. Students do not automatically receive housing upon matriculation.

Students who arrive without securing housing beforehand will have to get a hotel or hostel and can expect to pay several hundred euros.
