Extension of Validity of Mensa Children’s Cards

We would like to remind students with child(ren) that the Mensa children's cards must be extended every semester.  All cards that weren't extended will be blocked during the semester but can be reactivated upon presentation of your current certificate of enrollment. Please submit your current certificate of enrollment. To do so, you have the following options:

  • Send it by e-mail to sozialberatung {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de
  • Hand it in during the office hours at SSZ, Goethestraße 6, desk 5
  • Hand it in during the open office hours of the Social Counselling department

Pregnant students and parents who study have special questions and problems. The social counselling service of Studentenwerk Leipzig informs and advises students with child(ren) comprehensively. We can solve many problems in personal interviews and by arranging contacts to the authorities in charge. At the social counselling office, you will be informed about various options of financial assistance (e.g. application for unemployment pay/social benefits/housing allowance, etc.) on an individual basis.

  • Counselling and information of student parents(-to-be)
  • Application and issue of children cards for student restaurants
  • Advice on childcare facilities

This is where you find us.

Information Material

Because of the variety of different legal stipulations, the social counselors recommend pregnant international students that they agree an appointment for individual counselling.
