The registration in the electoral roll is done automatically after your first major subject has been assigned. If you would like to change this, you must inform the electoral administration (see below) and the student secretariat of this change by TbA. No matter if you are a foreign or German student: Please write an e-mail from your student e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: "Important ! Change of faculty". Of course, this is only possible if you are really enrolled at two faculties. An official application or similar is not necessary. In addition to the information about the faculties, you should always include the matriculation number.

As a constituted student body, stuvus has a democratic structure. All offices and committees are determined by elections.
Offices such as those of the chairman of the board of directors, the committee members, the advisers and the heads of the working groups are not elected directly by you, but by your representatives in the student parliament. If you want to fill such an office, you only have to apply to the president of the StuPa by 12 the day before a meeting of the student parliament and introduce yourself to the student parliament. In the first StuPa meeting of the semester, all offices except for the heads of the working groups are newly elected.
The Senate, the student parliament and the faculty councils are directly elected by you. For this purpose, the committee elections of the university take place once a year.
