AStA Student Committee

The AStA Student Committee is your university-wide lobby at the RWTH. It is elected annually by the student parliament.

Our tasks consist of representing students in university matters towards the university, the state and the public, administering the funds of the student body, advising on various social and student topics, organising a cultural programme and providing political education. We work together with many other student groups and organisations, e.g. the student councils, the equal opportunities office, the student senators, the foreigners’ representation (AV) or the numerous student initiatives and associations.

There is always a lot to do at the AStA. This is why numerous students and some employees work here. In order to organise the work, the AStA is structured into individual departments with specific areas of responsibility. Each department is managed independently and responsibly by the lecturers, supported by a team of project leaders.
