Emergency Support

Student Services Halle - Social Counseling and Special Programs for International Students

Student Services Halle is responsible for the conditions relating to studies. They offer affordable housing, food in canteens and cafeterias. They also have special programs for international students. The residence hall advising team consists of tutors who assist new students entering the country in getting started in the university.

We especially want to point out the wide range of consulting services. 'Studentenwerk' offers social counselling   ; for international students, counselling appointments can also be offered in English, French or Arabic. If you have difficulties studying or personal problems, you can contact the psychosocial counselling service.   

The Martin Luther University Student Council (Stura) also offers a social counselling service with special information and advice for international students.

Association "Hilfe für ausländische Studiernde e.V." (Help for foreign students)

The aim of the registered association “Haus,” founded in 1994, is to help international students of the Martin Luther University, who are in financial distress. Funds are collected from membership fees and donations. After verification of the student's situation, the financial help is administered at short notice and unbureaucratically, for example by temporary payment of rents, health insurance, and subsistence money prior to intermediate and final exams, etc.
