Studentenwerk Leipzig is a service provider with a social mission. Our Mensas and Cafeterias offer good-value, healthy food for the students and employees of Leipzig’s universities and academies. In our student halls of residence, students can live comfortably and at reasonable prices. Our Department of Grants (Amt für Ausbildungsförderung) is managing the funding of your studies in accordance with the Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz (BAföG; German Federal Education and Training Assistance Act, a German law concerning educational funding). In addition to that, we also support students’ mobility and student culture. Our counselling offices are helping you to master your studies even in situations that are not that easy. We provide special support for students with child(ren), international students, and students with impairments.
For the purpose of financing these offers and services, every student pays a Semesterbeitrag (a fee for social benefits payable every semester) to Studentenwerk Leipzig. This fee serves to fund the various support and counselling services, a big part of the Semesterbeitrag is used for supporting the provision of our Mensa offer. The amount and use of the Semesterbeitrag are determined in our Beitragsordnung (Regulations concerning the fee for social benefits).
Studentenwerk Leipzig is part-financed through subsidies based on the budget agreed upon by the Saxon State Parliament. The majority of the Studentenwerk Leipzig financing is paid by revenues generated from Mensas, Cafeterias and student halls of residence.
