stuvus-box

What is it about?

Do you have suggestions, problems, worries or ideas that you've always wanted to share with your student council (stuvus), but didn't know how?

Then use the new stuvus box! You can either drop us a note in the letterboxes at Nili (Pfaffenwaldring 57) and University Library in the city centre (Holzgartenstraße 16), or (as you learned from Corona) contact us via a contact form on the website or by sending us a letter.

We want to know what's on your mind (e.g. when you think a professor is completely out of line), what you're excited about or what really pisses you off at the university. This is the only way we at stuvus can take your concerns into account and implement new ideas.

Your message should remain as anonymous as possible and we will only pass on information if it is relevant to your concerns. Information on the concept and data protection can also be found on the website.

We look forward to your message!

    Data protection and anonymity

    This is an anonymous contact. You do not have to give any personal data, unless you feel it is necessary to explain your concern. Please describe your problem in as much detail as possible, as anonymity prevents queries. In this way, we do not store any personal data. However, we will store your message for processing and pass it on internally to the relevant departments. We also collect an anonymous overview of all complaints, which is deleted every 2 years. The data protection information from the stuvus website (stuvus.uni-stuttgart.de/en/contact/) also applies.

    Counselling and help

    Where can I find help?

    Are you looking for help with or around your degree programme?

    You have been discriminated against and are looking for support to take action against it?

    You have been harassed and would like to confide in someone?

    Here we have compiled a list of contact persons for various cases. If you don't know who to turn to, don't want to turn to any of the listed offices or have another problem and would like to talk to students first, you are welcome to contact the Department for Equality, Social Affairs and Counselling at any time.

    The reason why students from non-academic families are relatively underrepresented at German universities is not their lack of talent. Rather, there is a lack of role models in the family environment. Access to the necessary information is much more difficult for them. ArbeiterKind.de meets this challenge by providing comprehensive, diverse and easily accessible support for pupils, students and parents.
