The Managing Officer supports the university registrar, administration divisions and institutions in all matters related to the organisation of procedures, processes and record-keeping. Services include university-wide and external mailings as well as scheduling of events in Haus Buhl. It also provides introductory administrative training to new employees.
In addition to mailing and distribution, the mailroom handles questions regarding bulk and international mail.
Crisis management is another important responsibility of the staff unit. Together with other university institutions, it defines efficient emergency procedures in the event of fires, laboratory accidents, and so on. It also provides for and optimises the equipment needed in such emergencies.
Haus Buhl, the university-owned venue centrally located in Heidelberg’s Old Town, is available for university events of a celebratory nature. Information on scheduling rooms, eligible groups, number of users and cost can be obtained in the unit’s administrative office.
