BAföG counselling

Several times a week, the student BAföG counseling takes place in the social department of the AStA. As a student, you have the opportunity to get information from the on everything to do with BAföG. If, for example, you would like to find out about the various forms or the procedure itself before you apply for your first grant, or if you have problems with subsequent applications or questions about proof of performance, you have come to the right place. If you have any questions, you can get free advice from us during our consulting hours. You can also reach us by Mail at any time.

Hinweis für BAföG-Antragsteller*Innen 

It was recently published in the AZ that students who have been waiting for their BAföG for some time can bridge the gap by applying to the Jobcenter. As far as we know, this is not possible! The Social Department has asked the Jobcenter and was informed that enrolled students are only entitled to ALG II in exceptional cases. Students can submit an application for advance payment to the BAföG office, but here too you have to expect a waiting period. Further information can be found under this link: 

In the event of acute financial need, students can contact the Department of Social Affairs at or in person during opening hours from Monday to Friday between 10 am and 2 pm.
