Health and Well-being

Study healthy and happy!

If exam stress, financial worries or other issues are bothering you, you can always turn to our points of contact and support services. You can find the most important information on the German health system on this page.



If you are sick, you usually go to the general practitioner first. To find a good doctor, it is often helpful to ask your friends and acquaintances about their experiences. Unfortunately, many medical practices are very busy and therefore are no longer accepting new patients. We are happy to support you in your search for a family doctor. Please contact us if you need support.

Please also note our information under Emergencies if you need a doctor very urgently.

Emergencies - the most important phone numbers

☎ 112 Ambulance and Fire Brigade

☎ 110 Police

When calling the fire brigade, the ambulance service or the police, state your name and location slowly and clearly. Describe what has happened. Wait for further questions and never end the call on your own initiative! The emergency services may still have important questions.

Social counselling

If you have questions or difficulties of a financial, social or personal nature, the Social Counselling Service of the Studentenwerk is there to help. Sometimes a short piece of information is enough, sometimes the solution to a problem requires more intensive analysis. With their knowledge of a wide range of topics, the social counsellors help you find solutions. As a rule, counselling takes place in a personal one-on-one meeting. However, you can also call or write an e-mail - all enquiries are, of course, treated confidentially.

Topics that you can contact the social counselling service about include

  • Costs and financing options for your studies
  • Help with organisational decisions (change of subject, dropping out, semester off)
  • Support services for students with disabilities or a chronic illness, for pregnant women, students with children and for international students.

Here you can find the Social Counselling of the Studentenwerk
