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.

The contacts for Student Services are there for you via the Student Services website   

Corona Pandemic - Financial Aid

The Federal Republic of Germany provides financial aid to students who are in a desperate situation because of the Corona pandemic. Depending on the proven need, between 100 euros and 500 euros can be paid by Studentenwerk as a non-repayable grant.  
German as well as international students who are enrolled at Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg and who are not on leave of absence can apply online for the interim financial aid from  Studentenwerk Halle.

Incorporated Society of 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.
