Recognition as a university group

In order to use the services listed below, you must be “recognised” as a university group. In concrete terms, this means that the stuvus board checks for each university group whether it meets the requirements of the university group recognition statutes (see below).

The statutes with all the criteria and the procedure for recognition can be found here.

Advantages for Recognised University Groups

Being a recognised university group comes with a number of benefits.
To name just a few:

  • Printer quota of 1000 pages per semester (black and white) at stuvus.
  • free use of university rooms (for events during the week)
  • (optional) own domain
  • email addresses at stuvus
  • mailing lists
  • Nextcloud storage

The complete list of offered IT services can be found here. In certain cases, financial support is also possible, details of which can be found in the guidelines for subsidizing student groups (only German).
