Student Support

Ombuds Office for Students

Three people at a table. Only the hands are recognizable. One hand points to the other person with a ballpoint pen.

As a contact point for conflicts and complaints or other study-related concerns, we advise students and mediate in disagreements with teachers or service facilities. As ombudspersons, we act neutrally and seek amicable solutions. Contact is confidential and can also be made anonymously.


  • Difficulties within the context of courses & examinations or regarding admission & accreditation
  • Conflicts or discontinuation of supervision during the writing of final theses
  • Clarification of facts in case of different information from WU facilities & contact persons
  • Inappropriate behavior, discrimination & (sexual) harassment or violence
  • Listening to suggestions for improving study conditions & service facilities
For general questions about the study program, please contact the responsible service facilities!
