We are currently working on this page.

Do you want to learn more about the Students’ Union? You want to become active in the General Students’ Committee (AStA) and support your fellow students? – Wonderful!

We are looking forward to work with motivated people who want to support the General Students’ Committee.

Please contact the chairpersons (vorstand[at] or the head of the different departments.

The projects and offers we are currently working on or offer are numerous, but by no means complete. If you would like to advance a project or topic that we are currently not yet working on, we would be just as happy about your support!

Interested persons


For all journalists, we have listed an overview of all press releases of the General Student Committee (AStA) and the Students’ Union.
We are happy to receive reports about the Students’ Union. If you have an enquiry, please always contact the chairpersons (vorstand[at] first. The board will then forward the request if necessary and coordinate all press matters.

We receive every week several requests from companies, start-ups and similar institutions for cooperation, room bookings at the university or the posting of information.

The General Student Committee is primarily the political representation of the students.

Naturally, we provide our students with a lot of information and offers, but we are not a marketing platform for companies.

For us, the university is primarily an institution of science and not a permanent recruiting fair.

We are also not able to display job offers due to fire safety regulations.


We would be pleased if you use our free job fair for job advertisements. We are also planning to set up an online portal for small ads and the like.


In addition to these offers, however, we ask you to refrain from the above-mentioned inquiries, as we will almost exclusively decline them. The University of Mannheim Service and Marketing GmbH is responsible for commercial cooperation at the university.


The authenticity of references, certificates of voluntary work, and confirmations of participation

The Students’ Union is mainly supported by voluntary work but we also have permanent employees.

Therefore, we are happy to issue certificates of voluntary work and work references to these active members of staff. Since the fluctuation of staff in the student’s union is very high, we introduced a sealing system for the validation of official documents in November 2018.


All honorary office certificates and job references are therefore stamped with a seal since November 2018.

Since November 2018, the current seal number is “18-01”.

The aim is to enable you to check certificates from us more easily and thus to make us a reliable partner in our external relations.

If you have any questions regarding a document of the authored Students’ Union, please contact our secretary’s office at asta[at]

All certificates of honorary office and employment certificates issued before that date remain valid.
