What doesn’t happen during this time? A new city, your own flat, new people, not enough money, and your studies can bring you to your limits.And, quite possibly, problematic situations can arise during your studies.We warmly welcome all students seeking assistance. Pregnant students, students with children, international students, and students with disabilities are especially welcome. You can trust us with our discretion.We can assist you in getting oriented and making decisions and help you on your way to self-dependency. In emergency situations, we can help out with free meals and financial aid.You can come to us with all of your questions. Our experience has taught us that there are a number of issues which are often on the minds of students. These include:

maternity benefits (Mutterschaftsgeld) reduced prices for students
parent benefits (Elterngeld) working as a student
