Organisation of the student body

The Fachschaft Physics/Astronomy Bonn is, first of all, all students of physics or astronomy at the University of Bonn. Colloquially, however, the term "Fachschaft" often refers to the people who take part in meetings of the student council or take care of pending tasks. The body usually associated with student council work is the student council (FSR). However, there is also the student council representation (FSV) and the student council general meeting (FSVV). You can find out what the tasks of these committees are on the respective sub-pages of the committees.

Student council general meeting

The general student council meeting is the meeting of all students of physics and astronomy for the information of the members.

Student council representation

The student council representation is the elected body of the student council that decides on official business.

Student council

How can you get involved in the student council?



We organise various events, for example a physicists' party, for which we need help with preparation and implementation.


Working groups

For certain issues, discussions at a meeting are not sufficient. Then a working group is formed from interested persons to work on the issue more intensively.



Certain tasks require permanent supervision or dedicated persons in charge. You can find the currently existing departments on this page.


Committee representation

The student council sends student representatives to various university committees to represent the student body. You can find a current overview of the committees here.
