Counselling for students with disabilities
Barrier-free through studies

The general conditions for students with chronic illness or disability vary greatly at the universities. We therefore recommend that prospective students inform themselves about the local conditions at an early stage. The Counselling Centre for Social & International Affairs – BeSI of the Studierendenwerk Hamburg provides support in claiming specific benefits and compensation schemes.

We are happy to help you

Due to the pandemic, the counselling centres are currently closed for spontaneous visits. However, we offer consultations by phone, video conference (with appointment), email and – if absolutely necessary – in person (with appointment).
