Department of Internal Affairs

The AStA Department of Internal Affairs is headed by Hannah Bornemann.

We are your contact persons for questions regarding exams, issues about your studies, or problems with lecturers. In addition, our department organizes the ‘Urwahl’, i.e. the ballot for the semester ticket.
We also support the work of the various Fachschaftsräte (FSR) – your student representation at the faculty level – and the Fachgruppen (FG), and we are in contact with university leadership as well as with the student representatives in the committees of the academic self-administration. This is mainly the responsibility of Hannah Bornemann, Ann-Julie Blume and Roman Kirk. In this way, we want to help achieve better study conditions, a better campus infrastructure, and stronger student participation opportunities for you. We also keep a list of all FSR and FG email addresses, which we always try to keep up-to-date. If you have questions or problems in your studies, or you want to get involved yourself, they are a good place for you to go.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis we are unfortunately not able to offer physical office hours at the moment. Should you have something you want talk to us about, you can reach us for phone consultation every Wednesday between 12 am and 1 pm, at 0551-3934563. Julia Bartels will be happy to help you with any questions you may have about your studies, your first semester or the university. We can also arrange a telephone or video conference call at other times. In addition, you can always reach us by mail.

The AStA’s support structure for first-year students is also located in this department and is managed by Patrick Mack. If you have any questions, he can be reached by mail.

The AStA has a fairly large inventory of various items such as beer benches, pavilions, and coffee machines. These can be borrowed by student groups. If you are interested, please write a mail to our rental account.
