OVGU Compass

Welcome at Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg!

Translating our homepages is in progress. Unfortunately many pages that this page links to are not yet translated.

We kindly ask to contact us, if you have any question.

The human resources department will provide you with information on all questions relating to your employment relationship, e.g. vacation, illness, business trips, further training, company health management.

All internal regulations and forms of the OVGU can be found here: by "Bekanntmachungen" we mean all rules and important processes.  All forms and templates are available in the "Formularpool”. They can only be called up from OVGU Computers or via vpn. As the official language is German, they are mostly written in German. If you need any help, please contact your supervisor or the human ressource department (contact data on this page)

The organization and structure of the OVGU can be found on these pages.

A wide range of services makes working at the OVGU even more attractive. You can find more about the canteen, sports, further education and other offers here.

Share questions, complaints, ideas, requests and other feedback with us!

Are you new to Magdeburg? As the state capital, our city has a lot to offer. Convince yourself here.

The welcome days for new employees take place twice a year at the OVGU. Here you will find information about the structure, working methods and service facilities of our university. There are also useful tips about the university as a workplace.

"Welcome@OVGU" is an offer for the target group of newly appointed professors. In addition to the official welcome by the university management and information on how the university works, the focus is on getting to know each other and building university-wide networks.

We would like to give scientists who are new to the OVGU a little help and regularly offer an open information and discussion round on ZOOM.
