But they are also happy to be your first point of contact in difficult situations and offer help in finding solutions. You can make an appointment for a counselling session by phone or by e-mail. Of course, the counselling sessions are absolutely confidential and free of charge for students.
In addition to general questions before taking up studies or during the transition from studies to work, you can come to us for advice on the following topics:
- Financing your studies
- Work and study
- Counselling and help in financial emergencies (emergency fund)
- Social benefits
- Health insurance

- Support in special situations (e.g. pregnancy)
- Studying with a child
- Assistance for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses.
Besides one-to-one counselling sessions, the social counselling service also provides you with information in open-house counselling hours. We regularly have an information desk on site in Stuttgart-Mitte, Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Esslingen, Göppingen and Ludwigsburg. Just drop by – questions are free of charge.
