Advice & help for students

We value trusting relationships and respectful and appreciative behavior. In our mission statement, we have committed ourselves to actively combating discrimination, bullying and abuse of power.

Counseling for students: Protected and confidential

All conversations with the university's counselors take place in a protected space and are subject to confidentiality. Information from the conversation is only passed on with the express consent of the person concerned, and measures are also only initiated with the express consent of the person concerned.

We all help

Not sure who the right contact person is for your problem? Don't worry: If you are looking for advice, you can contact any advisor - they will help and refer you if necessary.

Do you have questions about individual courses, modules or are you not sure how to put together your timetable? Then contact the dean's office in your department.




Complaints office for discrimination

In addition to counseling, those affected by discrimination can complain to the complaints office. The complaint opens a procedure that becomes known to the university management and is therefore not subject to confidentiality. The procedure opens up the possibility of imposing sanctions against the discriminating persons.

Contact: Felix Leidinger (Legal advisor)

Complaints office for study conditions

Students can complain to the Complaints Office about study conditions. The complaints office works out solutions to problems in consultation with the departments and the university management. The procedure is not subject to confidentiality.
