The Schneckenhof parties at the University of Mannheim are legendary and known beyond the city limits. The General Students’ Committe (AStA), together with the student councils, also co-organises the Schneckenhof parties for students.
The freshers’ party and another party (which are also called “Hof” as in SchneckenHOF) in the spring semester are organised by the AStA. Some Chaplin events are also organised by the AStA.
The semester ticket is based on a contract between the Studierendewerk Mannheim and the Verkehrsverbund Rhein Neckar (VRN). As the representation for students, the General Student Committee (AStA) has negotiated the semester ticket on behalf of Mannheim’s students in recent years.
One thing is clear to us: mobility must remain affordable for us students.We have been working on this in the past years and will continue to do so in the future. Since mobility is also a political issue, we believe that the city of Mannheim is now called upon to ensure that mobility remains affordable for students in the future, while maintaining the same BAföG rates.
An expansion of travel options to Karlsruhe and Frankfurt are also on our agenda.

We throw away far too much food every day. Which is why the General Students’ Committee (AStA) would like to actively contribute to a much needed change.
As of now, there is the Fairteiler in the Parkstube. However, we want to set up a publicly accessible food shelf again where trained food rescuers can put still edible food. And everyone can pick it up.
