The financial officer is obliged to keep track of the budget decided by the StuPa and they ensure that the AStA manages the budget according to legal regulations. They have a lot of financial responsibility because the household has a total of over € 23 million due to the semester ticket and the social contribution to be paid by every student.

Current budget

In the figure above, the breakdown of the semester fees of the last few years is shown graphically. Here you can see not only that the AStA contribution makes up the smallest proportion, but has also remained as constant as possible and has even fallen again in the meantime. We strive to continue this and to use the students’ money as sparingly and economically as possible in order to make their studies as pleasant as possible with events, offers and support.
