Services for disabled or chronically ill students

It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 students at the University of Tübingen whose ability to study is affected by illness and/or disability. In order to support such students, the University of Tübingen offers special counseling services that can be used at any stage of studies, or even before the start of studies.

Current situation:

Dear new students, dear students and prospective students,

We are still here to help in all matters concerning your studies. Due to the current situation caused by the coronavirus, we have had to reduce our opening hours and regular counseling options.

At present, our advice is provided by e-mail, telephone or video. It is also possible to arrange scheduled counseling sessions (these sessions can take place either by phone or via dfn video conferencing) so that specific topics can be discussed in detail. The sessions are conducted by Katrin Motta, Birgit Grunschel or Katja Grathwol. You can reach us via e-mail at katrin.mottaspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de or zsbspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de, or phone us at 07071 29-72555 + 29-77730, the Student Counseling Service.

Starting mid-June, in certain cases, we will again be able to offer face-to-face personal consultations by appointment.

If you have questions in connection with the coronavirus, you can find information on the University’s information page

We will also provide information here of any changes.

Topics for consultation

I can support you in deciding on the appropriate type of study and university, in planning and organizing your studies, and in answering questions about possible alternatives. There is also the option of counseling in personally difficult situations. An important topic can also be the financing of studies, the procurement of necessary aids, finding suitable housing, as well as assistance in everyday study. If you need an individual adjustment of study conditions, you can apply for disadvantage compensation. Counseling is voluntary, confidential and open-ended.

You can find other consultation topics that may be relevant to you and other students before and during your studies here.
