Studying with impariment

The university would like to make it easier for students with health impairments to study or to consider their concerns comprehensively.

The counselling service for the disabled supports and advises students.

Students with impaired mobility can reach the lecture halls, library and secretary's office via handicapped-accessible entrances, some with automatic door openers including elevators.

A workstation for the visually impaired (text scanner with reading aloud function) is planned for the library.

 

The project and the working group "Barrier-free University" have existed since 2016 with the aim of continuously making campus and university life, including teaching, more inclusive. Starting in the summer semester of 2019, all teachers will be provided with a handbook entitled "Enabling students with disabilities/chronic illness to study as barrier-free as possible" and will be included in the continuing education programme for teachers as a topic.
