Representative for students with disabilities and chronic illness

My name is Lena Schulte (23 years old) and I am studying literature and linguistics for my master’s degree. In my free time I like baking and I spend a lot of time reading. In addition to my studies, I am active as a volunteer for the Young Self-Help in Aachen. There, I meet interesting people who manage to reconcile their everyday life with their health restrictions and who do not let themselves be beaten down. As the new representative for the interests of students with chronic illness and disability, it is my goal to support exactly these people in their studies. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need help. Often you don’t even know what kind of help you might get – I’m happy to help you there as well! The best way to reach me is by email at or just come by during my office hours.

My name is Niclas Elsen and I am studying chemistry for my bachelors degree. I’m 23 years old, I’m from Aachen, I’m always in a good mood and I like to play handball in my free time. Since February 2019 I am the deputy commissioner for students with disabilities and chronic diseases and I represent you in the senate and student parliament. If you have any questions about compensation for disadvantages, hardship applications and financing possibilities, or if you need a sympathetic ear, just come to me for advice! You can reach me by mail at or by phone at 0241 80 93762 as well as in our open consultation hours.
