Campus Buddies at the Faculty of Arts

"Closing learning gaps, supporting students"

This is the motto of the Campus Buddies program, which is intended to accompany, advise and support students of the Faculty of Arts for the first time in the coming summer semester (SoSe 2022).

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted every aspect of daily public and private life, and university is no exception. The start of studies was postponed, lectures and seminars did not take place in full lecture halls, and were forced instead to take place online. Moreover, you couldn’t get to know your fellow students over a coffee, but instead had to rely on WhatsApp or the Zoom chat.

Much of what otherwise seems to be taken for granted has been denied to the students who have started their studies with us at the Faculty of Arts since the summer semester 2020, and that is meant to change in the coming summer semester.

Don't know how to find and borrow a book from the library? Feeling a little lost on campus? Don't want to go to the canteen alone anymore? Are you studying with a child and are looking for a changing table, or do you need an overview of barrier-free access on campus?

In the summer semester 2022, our Campus Buddies will be on hand to give you help and advice.

If you have urgent questions about your studies, the organization of your studies, the locations, or other counseling options, please take a look at our Moodle course "Studying at the Faculty of Arts" or send us an email:
