Advisory Board

States' Council

The States' Council (“Länderrat”) advices the Executive Board and Secretary General on the fundamental and strategic tasks of the Studentenwerke.

Its field of work includes the management or political positioning of the Studentenwerke in areas such as advisory and counselling services, accommodation and the financing of studies.

The States' Council usually meets once or twice a year. Each federal state is represented by a managing director from the local Studentenwerk, or by a spokesperson from the states' working group to which Studentenwerke in some federal states have become affiliated.
