Our social mission

Studentenwerk Leipzig is responsible for the social, economic, health, and cultural care and support of Leipzig students. In addition to inexpensive meals, housing close to the university and advice and support in accordance with the Federal Education and Trainings Assistance Act (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz), we offer free advisory services for various student target groups to help them master their studies as well as possible, even in situations that are not entirely easy. That includes legal and social counseling as well as the psychosocial counseling offered by Studentenwerk Leipzig. Furthermore, there are childcare services for students' children to help them combine studies and family. We also provide cultural funding for student projects and arrange student jobs.

As a provider of social services, we currently take care of about 39,000 students at eight Leipzig universities.

Have a successful and healthy start to your studies!
