To make studying successful, students and universities and colleges require a competent and reliable partner. You will find such a partner in the Hochschul-Sozialwerk Wuppertal – the University of Wuppertal Student Services Office.
The purpose of our public organisation is to provide students with social, economic and cultural support. The Hochschul-Sozialwerk views itself as provider of services to the students and to the universities. Our key aspiration is to work in a customer-oriented, efficient, non-profit and environmentally conscious way.
The Hochschul-Sozialwerk has 170 employees and works in a professional and target-oriented way to provide the following key tasks:
- Accommodation (1,085 places in student residences)
- Eating & drinking (10 restaurants, cafeterias, refectories)
- as well as student finance (total subsidy: 15 million Euros).
In addition to this, the student’s union also operates at a cultural level, assisting foreign students, hosting conferences and providing catering services for social events and parties.
