Student Representatives (Die Fachschaftsräte, FSR)
The Fachschaftsräte (FSR) are the student representatives of each respective faculty. Student representatives are elected in parallel with the student parliament elections. A common FSR of students from the faculties of health and mathematics is elected at Stadtholz. The engineering faculty elects its own FSR without the mathematics faculty. At the Minden location, a common campus FSR is elected. A separate FSR is also elected for the Gütersloh location.
The FSR represents the students of a faculty (or campus) vis-à-vis the deanship (Dekanat) and establishes contact with student representatives of other universities. It organizes informational events, general meetings, protests, and often organizes traditional parties. In addition, many student representatives offer exam services, sell teaching materials, and operate photocopiers at the faculties.
The student representatives can be contacted for all kinds of problems concerning your studies and are there to offer advice. They can usually be reached during regular office hours (see their notices), via email or telephone.
