The General Student Committee (AStA) is the executive organ of the student body, represents it externally and conducts day-to-day business. According to the Hochschulgesetz, the AStA has, among other things, the task of representing the university-political concerns of the student body and »looking after the economic […] needs of the students«, which concerns, for example, the introduction or maintenance of the state-wide semester ticket. The AStA organizes itself into individual departments that cover a wide range of topics: from university policy to finances, organization of sports, cultural, educational and recreational events, and Erasmus and first-semester support. If necessary, new units and committees can also be formed.
The ongoing business of the AStA includes the refund of semester fees, the issuance of parking permits, and the financial support of student projects of outstanding interest to the student body.
Participation in the committees offers an insight into internal university processes and university policy processes. The commitment can be claimed towards the university, BAföG and scholarships as a reason for the extension of the standard period of study.

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!
Opening times: by appointment or by e-mail
