Telephone consultation hours at the Department for Grants - individual personal counselling on request

Please note that enquiries about the status of your application and incoming mail cannot be answered. Department for Grants can currently only be reached by telephone on Tuesdays 01:00-5:00 p.m. and Thursdays 09:00-11:00 a.m. or by e-mail. You can find the contact details here. We continue to take infection control very seriously; due to the spatial conditions, regular personal office hours are not possible at the moment.

All documents required for the BAföG application, such as applications or supporting documents, can be conveniently sent to the Department for Grants by post. Alternatively, the documents can be dropped into the letterbox in the foyer of Goethestraße. Or you can submit your application completely electronically using BAföG Digital. (In this case, please do not submit any documents twice by post or e-mail, but work exclusively via the portal).

However, students who would like personal advice can still make an individual appointment on site. Here you will find the contact details of the responsible person. Please note that masks are mandatory in the entire building.
