Welcome to the website of the AStA at the University of Mannheim
The General Students’ Committee (Allgemeine Studierendenausschuss) at the University of Mannheim is the official elected representation of you, the students.
The two executives, seven officers, and many other volunteers represent your interests regarding university policies at the university, regional partners, and the state government.
We For You.
This is not just our promise but also our goal.
We stand up for the students so that everyone can organise their studies at the University of Mannheim as individually and comfortably as possible.
Therefore, we address issues such as attendance and participation policies, library opening hours, or the menu expansion at the Mensa with the people in charge.
The General Students’ Committee deals, as opposed to the student representatives of different faculties, with the representation of interests of all students at the University of Mannheim.
The current AStA coalition since the last student parliamentary session consists of two political university groups: The Young Socialists (Jusos) and the Green-Alternatives (gahg) of the University of Mannheim.

How is the General Students‘ Committee (AStA) organised and how does it work?
The General Students’ Committee (Allgemeiner Studierendenausschuss) is the highest executive body of the Verfasste Studierendenschaft (official Student Union) at the University of Mannheim. The VS is an independent public entity and under the legal supervision of the rectorate of the university.
The AStA executive board and the officers are elected by the Student Parliament (StuPa), the highest legal body of the Students’ Union. Different political university groups are elected into the Students’ Parliament by all degree-seeking students at the university.
On the faculty-level, ten departmental student representative bodies serve as representatives to the five faculty deans and all study programme managers.
