What we do:

In addition to advocacy, we organize events, offer consultations, print your scripts, lend technology, tools or other equipment, and provide you with important information. If you need learning materials, we also offer an AStA store at each university location.

We consist of a total of 27 students and two employees and are organized into eleven units. We meet approximately every two weeks for an AStA meeting, where we discuss the agenda items, which are recorded in minutes, and finally decide by vote. The meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to drop in at any time.

Want to join us or attend a session? Then get in touch at asta@hochschulfreun.de or take a look at our available units. We look forward to seeing you!

What do the people do?

Have you ever wondered what the individual units actually mean and what exactly the tasks of the respective units are? Here we give you a short overview of the tasks of the General Student Committee:

Letter A as tile


At each location (Westerberg, Haste and Lingen) we have one person responsible for the General Unit. They will answer your inquiries or forward them to the appropriate unit. In addition, they take care of office organization and all general activities that arise.

Letter B as tile

BAföG and social affairs

The Department for BAföG and Social Affairs is responsible for all questions regarding BAföG, scholarships or other social issues. We offer consultations and take care of your problems. In addition, we supervise social projects at the university.

University Policy

In order to promote communication and cooperation among the committees, we have our university policy officers (HoPo). They attend meetings of various committees, are responsible for conducting university elections, organize team building activities, and simply keep an eye on university politics and regularly take positions on university policy issues.

Did you know that the semester ticket is organized by our department for mobility? In fact, they enter into negotiations with the transport companies, handle the ticket and are also responsible for reimbursement. Furthermore, they manage our bicycle repair shop at the Westerberg campus.

Letter T as tile


When holding events, we also often need suitable music or lighting equipment. This is managed and executed by our technology department! Whether music systems, lights, beer pong tables and much more: You can also borrow our equipment from our speakers for technology.

Executive Board

Our board consists of the general officers of the locations Westerberg, Haste and Lingen. The Board of Directors is responsible for our meetings, chairs them and sends out the invitations.

Learning Resources Unit

The learning materials department provides you with pens, notepads and other office and writing materials at cost price at each location in the AStA stores.

The first contact person for international students (incoming students) is our International Office. It provides support and mediation for problems and inquiries, cooperates with the International Offices of the university and promotes intercultural exchange.

Culture, sports and leisure

Our officers for culture, sports and leisure (KSF) are responsible for everything to do with leisure activities alongside studies on campus. They organize and conduct parties and cultural events, network with various institutions as well as committees. Furthermore, you take care of our cultural semester ticket.

Letter Ö as tile

Public Relations

Our Instagram or Facebook channel is filled by our public relations officers. In addition, you will help the other units with the creation of flyers, posters or press releases. They are also responsible for creating our semester planner.

Letter N as tile


The department for sustainability is committed to more environmental awareness and protection at the university, in the committees, but also in general!

In doing so, the unit works closely with the university’s Sustainability Working Group and organizes actions with other groups for a more sustainable future.

All students at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences transfer a small amount of money to the General Student Committee with their semester contribution.
