State: 01.06.2022

How can I contact STUDIERENDENWERK?

The Reckhammerweg 1 is generally closed for visitors (without appointment). Documents can be deposited in the mailbox there. All can be reached by phone and e-mail during office hours. Social and psychological consultations also take place in the form of video consultations.

Appointments on site possible

With appointment we advise you in our administrative building in Essen.

Mask obligation largely eliminated

The mask requirement has been lifted. Exception: Our locations of the Hochschule Ruhr West and the Folkwang University of the Arts. Since both universities adhere to the mask obligation, the wearing of an OP or FFP2 mask remains mandatory in the buildings there (and accordingly in our canteens und cafeterias). Even without obligation: masks are still welcome!

What do you have to pay attention to as a resident of our dormitories?

House rules, precautions, payment problems - we have compiled all important informations for our tenants: Residences and Corona.

Are there any changes concerning BAföG?

The multiple extension of the standard period of study is accompanied by the increase of  the maximum BAföG funding period. Read all details here.
