In need of a good conversation or advice?

Staff from the social services office of student services (Stuvo) are ready to support you with any possible questions or difficulties you might encounter during your studies and to do so with discretion. They are well aware that it is not always easy to ask difficult questions or to bare your soul.

By talking about difficult topics with someone, you give them a name that you can take control of. You can see more clearly what is going on and what you can possibly do about it. The social service supports you in word and deed.

  • You are having problems making contact with other students
  • Your relationship is stranding
  • You have little self-confidence
