Student involvement

Participating in a student initiative means making a difference on campus, getting involved in an issue, organising parties and experiencing what it means to work as a team. Every semester, students get involved in one of our student initiatives and student councils, pushing ideas forward and making new connections. You too can become part of the community!

University sports

From A for Aikido to Z for Zumba - whatever your preference, our sports programme has you covered! We offer tried-and-tested courses as well as new sports trends in order to create the most varied programme possible. The courses are opten to students and staff of Reutlingen University and in many instances free of charge.

Rehearsals take place every fortnight on Mondays from 18:00-19:30. If you are interested, please contact Benjamin Himpel at any time.

Help shape the university

Students at Reutlingen University have various opportunities to get involved with the university and its study conditions. Help shape the campus in one of the numerous student groups!

Campus-wide initiatives

The Student Parliament (STUPA) is the highest decision-making body of the constituted student body. It is an important body for representing the wishes, suggestions and ideas of students in all faculties. The STUPA consists of the officially elected student representatives of the university bodies. In addition to the elected representatives, many students also participate in the STUPA units.

What we do

Our STUPA meets once a month for STUPA meetings, where important issues are decided. Besides the meetings, the STUPA does a lot more. Our units organise trips and LGBTQ+ events, discuss topics such as digitalisation and campus beautification with the university, take care of university sports and many other topics.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for students who want to make a difference on campus. No matter what topic your heart beats for; with us you can bring in your ideas, make a difference and meet lots of great people. Are you interested in becoming a student representative? Then come along to our STUPA meetings! Do you want to get involved in our units? Then send us an email or just drop by our STUPA office.

The chairperson mainly takes care of representative tasks, the financial officer looks after the finances, the secretary takes care of minutes etc. and the 2 assessors round off the ASTA.

What we do

The ASTA decides on many important things, such as the approval of project applications, and takes care of the students' cooperation with the presidium or cooperation with other organisations. Overall, the ASTA takes on a lot of responsibility, organises many great offers for students or supports initiatives on campus in their work.

Every year we form a delegation of about 20 students to fly together to the largest UN simulation in New York in March/April. There, students from all over the world come together to re-enact the different committees of the UN for five days. The aim is to diplomatically represent the position of one's own country - a different one every year - and to work with other countries on solutions to global problems.

What we do

The conference in New York is preceded by weekly preparatory meetings from October onwards, as well as a get-to-know-you weekend at the beginning of the winter semester and an intensive seminar in January (usually in Berlin). Otherwise, it's up to the delegation what happens. Whether it's a visit to the Christmas market or a pizza dinner - everything is possible. On the side, we organise various events for fundraising and charity, e.g. waffle sales or a blood donation campaign.

Who we are looking for

If you are interested in politics and want to prepare yourself intensively over a longer period of time for the positions of a country and the processes of the UN, this is the right place for you. Our working language is English.

How to reach us

We hold kick-offs at the beginning of the winter semester. There you will find out how to apply. The application deadline is usually mid-October and after that we decide who will be part of the delegation next year.
