Information and Advice
Come to our office to receive information and advice on the topics below. You can find us at the canteen building on Hubland campus, 1st floor, room 104.
Public transport pass (Semesterticket)
At universities in Bavaria, we do not have what is called a Verfasste Studierendenschaft, i. e. a legally constituted student government. This is why we are not allowed to conduct negotiations on the Semesterticket on your behalf. Instead, negotiations are conducted by the competent Studentenwerk.
But of course we are still grateful for any suggestions you may have regarding bus routes, frequencies etc. While we might not be allowed to conduct negotiations on the Semesterticket, what we can do is put your concerns and suggestions forward to WVV, the Würzburg public transport company.
If buses are so crowded that they won't stop to take you on etc., it might be a good idea to contact both us and WVV. Click here for more information on our initiative ‘WVV says they want to get better - let's help them get better’ and the contact number.

Stop by and pick up
- the booklet University Sport,
- calendars of political seminars and further education courses,
- leaflets on topics such as studying in Würzburg or financial support for students as well as leaflets on issues concerning student parents, student assistants etc.,
- information on our working groups and related events,
- timetables of buses no. 10, 14, 34, 114 and 214,
- and much more.
If we have several copies of a leaflet, you are likely to find these on display in front of our office.
For information on topics in higher education policy, events and everything else that is going on at our University, check out our info pillars in the entrance hall of the canteen on Hubland campus. They are also a good place to start if you are looking for a side job.
Counselling and advice
The responsibilities of student representations usually (i. e. in German federal states other than Bavaria) include offering free and independent (!) counselling services for students (e. g. advice on legal, financial or social issues). Since Bavaria is the only federal state in which universities do not have a Verfasste Studierendenschaft and we thus do not have the resources to do so, we have to resort to other institutions.
