Counseling in special life situations

Studying is often a special step for students with many new opportunities, but also great challenges: Orientation in a new living environment, organization of lectures in presence or online, of learning phases as well as part-time job, family and free time.

This is all the more difficult when external circumstances mean that contact with fellow students, friends and family is partially or completely lost. Personal exchange is missing, one feels left alone.

If you feel addressed and need help, you will find various support and counseling services below, which you can use free of charge.

Please do not hesitate to seek support, we will be happy to help you.

If you do not know which office to contact with your request or if there are no English-language services available, please contact the Central Student Advisory Office at 06241/ 509 276 or by email at
