Studentenwerk helps Ukrainian students

The current situation in Ukraine has not left students unscathed. In accordance with our mission, we want to help and are now offering Ukrainian students fast and uncomplicated assistance within the scope of our possibilities. 
The assistance is as follows:
  • Until further notice, needy students from Ukraine will receive up to 50 euros per month on their FAUcard (or the maximum amount that can still be charged to the respective card (card limit 99 euros)). To do so, these students must write an email to; they will receive a reply immediately describing the exact application procedure.
  • The Psychological Counselling Service will be offering special telephone consultation hours for Ukrainian students from Friday, 4 March: Wednesdays 9-10am and Fridays 14-15pm. In addition, in about 2 weeks there will be a group offer accompanied by our psychologists, preferably in presence. This counselling is free of charge, the usual counselling fees are waived. If necessary, the counselling capacity will be further expanded.
  • Ukrainian students who live with us in a hall of residence can now arrange generous rent deferrals. Please contact the responsible WohnService for this.
In addition, we hope that the BAföG will be opened up to Ukrainian students. We have already asked the State Ministry for Science and the Arts about this and are actively campaigning for it! This depends on the officially recognised refugee status (in the sense of the Geneva Refugee Convention) of the persons concerned.
