Studentenwerk Halle

Counseling services

Our social counseling informs and advises you when neccessary on a variety of study related and everyday questions, especially on student financing.

Our aim is to develop, together with you, individual concepts of financing in the various phases of your studies. The focus is on finding one unique, optimal combination of financing possibilities that suits you. 

The diverse range of counseling services include, among others:

  • Working during the studies
  • Nationwide bank loans and scholarships
  • Health insurance
  • Accident insurance
  • Wohngeld and Arbeitslosengeld II
  • Rundfunkbeitrag
  • International student card (ISIC-Card)
    see also 
    You can order the ISIC-Card online or you can come to us: we will issue you the ISIC-Card by appointment.

By the way, we also help for example with book allowances, free meals, subsidies in very finacially tense situations .

The social counseling is always free of charge for you!


What things should you know and pay attention to, and what can you do at the beginning of your studies to save money and time?

What are the consequences of registering in Halle as a primary or secondary residence?

Who can get rid of the Rundfunkbeitrag? Who can get Wohngeld?

studying with child(ren)

What financial support is available during pregnancy or materinty leave? When should you take a holiday semester?

How is childcare organized?

Which contact persons can advise me? What help does the Studentenwerk offer?

Studying with health restrictions

What kind of counseling and support services are available at universities, at the Studentenwerk and in the university cities?

Are there any special scholarships for students with health restrictions?

Job and Bachelor's or Master's thesis - does it work together?

Avoid university exmatriculation shortly before the end of the study for financial reasons (social security entitlements, alternative financing options).
