Besides inexpensive meals in our Mensas, accommodation close to the university and advice and financial support in accordance with the Federal Training Assistance Act (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz), we offer free counselling services for a range of challenges to enable our students to master their studies as well as possible even in difficult situations. These counselling services include legal and social counselling as well as psychosocial counselling provided by the Studentenwerk Leipzig. Further, there are childcare services, that support our student parents in successfully managing their studies and family life.
