Student Tutors

We, your student tutors Amar, Christian, Erika and Hagen, work in the team of the Commissioner for Students with Disabilities to support students of our university. In our team, students with and without health impairments/chronic conditions work closely with Mr. Meile. Regular team meetings help us qualify for our work.

To truly create “one university for everyone”, we offer you our help with organizing your studies and with academic work from a student’s point of view. We are also at your disposal with advice on individual questions and can share our own experiences of everyday student life with you. We also offer you our support for written examinations, if specific help is necessary. All arrangements in this regard are made via Mr. Meile

Please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sports Without Barriers

The University Athletic Department has been offering a special concept for students and employees with impairments since the winter semester 2013/2014. Its main focus is on the inclusion and special support sports can offer. Within this framework, the University Athletic Department intends to offer sports classes tailored exclusively for students with impairments on the one hand, while, on the other hand, also offering the opportunity to participate in designated classes alongside people without impairments. The student fitness clubs are also opening their doors and will offer students with impairments the opportunity to receive individual training plans. In all of the above-mentioned areas, you will, of course, have well-trained and sensitized coaches at your disposal. Unfortunately, not all of our sports facilities are accessible without barriers, so individual arrangements might have to be made. The University Athletic Department cordially invites all students with impairments at the university to participate in this project and is happy to once again break down barriers through sports. The concept with all courses and offers can be found on our homepage or is available through the respective contact persons.
