How to contact us:

We are still happy to offer our support on the phone, during our opening hours.

If you would like to arrange a face-to-face appointment, please give us a ring during our office and opening hours or send an email.

Please wear an FFP2 mask for face-to-face consultations. Should you be showing any symptoms of a cold, we ask you not to come by personally. In that case, we provide our counselling and advisory services via video call or on the phone.

We urgently ask you to cancel appointments should you not be able to keep them, so that we can hand them on to other students in need of our support!

Alternatively, it is also possible to have video call sessions – for which we also ask you to arrange an appointment up ahead.
