The Allgemeine Studierendenausschuss (AStA)

The Allgemeiner Studierendenausschuss (AStA) is the university-wide representation of interests of all students at RWTH. We are elected annually by the student parliament. Our tasks consist of representing the students’ interests in university policy towards the university, the state and the public, managing the financial resources of the student body, advising on a wide range of social and student issues, organizing a cultural program and political education.

We work together with many other student groups and organizations, such as the student councils (Fachschaften), the equal opportunity project of the student body (Gleichstellungsprojekt), the student senators, the representation of foreign students (AV) or the numerous student initiatives and associations.
