Studying with a disability or chronic illness

The commissioners representing students with disabilities or a chronic disease support the universities in their task of meeting the special needs of students with impairments. Their work aims at providing equal opportunities and participation by creating a barrier-free environment and by giving advice on individual regulations for disadvantage compensation.

This applies to both physically disabled students as well as students with mental health problems. Especially students with imperceptible impairments or those with mental health problems often forgo support for fear of stigmatization.


As a commissioner for students with impairments, I am available to provide advice and support for all questions that arise in connection with their studies. The consultation is confidential and is of course subject to the obligation of secrecy.
