Students with Disabilities

Students with a disability, chronically ill students, prospective and first-semester students can find helpful information and tipsfor their studies in the Mannheim region.

There are many questions that come up for handicapped and chronically ill prospective students before applying about health concerns during their studies.

Questions such as:

  • How is the institution built? Handicap accessible?
  • Student accommodations
  • Is public transportation equipped for the disabled, etc?
  • Financial support/BAföG
  • Funding possibilities/Scholarships
  • Counseling options

The Studierendenwerk in cooperation with the representative for disabled persons of the University of Mannheim has published a guideline for disabled and/or chronically ill students that is focused on this topic.

Moreover, disabled and chronically ill students are welcome to take full advantage of all the services offered at the Studierendenwerk.
