The Asta (Students’ Union) is the executive organ of the student body and represents it to the public domain. Equally, the AStA organises the operations of the student body. This includes a wide range of themes from university politics, via sport and culture to advice for first termers. Thus, it has two independent departments. According to the law governing institutes of higher education the Asta has the task of representing the political needs of the student body and of »looking after the economic […] needs of the students«, which means among other things the introduction and operation of public transport pass.
The Asta offers students the possibility of obtaining discount tickets for the purchase of art materials. We also issue the International Student ID card (ISIC) and provide forms for student grants and TV licences. Those who wish to be exempt from the public transport pass, can submit the form to us. We also have some sports equipment for loan.
During the lecture times Mon – Thurs 13:00 – 14:00 hrs or by appointment in the Asta Office in the “Kesselhaus”

Art Students’ Representative Body
Representative Body for Art Teachers
What does the art students’ representative body do? It is a group of commited students of the courses ‘Art for Secondary School Teachers’. Our work is comparable with the work of student councils in schools, for we are all students and work voluntarilty. We look after art students’ interests. The representative body tries to take on various tasks involving the supervision of first-term students and the coordination of both universities. Also: we organise information events, create posters and inform students by e-mail or by word of mouth when e.g. the examination regulations are changed yet again, or exhibitions, excursions, guest lectures etc are given. Recently, we organised a trip for all first termers at the beginning of the winter term – we are also mediators between students and professors or faculty staff when there are problems – we get involved in committees, in talks with the administrations, senate and professors for your interests and for better and more flexible study conditions! – we are an open body, which means everyone is invited to get involved. During lecture times (but not holidays) you can find us on the last Thursday of the month at the Phollkomplex from 19:00 hrs onwards. We would like to help you with problems, questions, suggestions, and are also willing to discuss them with you. Come along and get an appointment or write us an e-mail or message!
