General Student Committee

The General Student Committee (AStA) is an organ of the constituted student body. It represents the student body, carries out the decisions of the student parliament (StuPa) and handles the day-to-day administration of the student body. The AStA consists of the chair, the deputy chair(s) and the other elected team members. Below, you will find information on all current departments.

The AStA represents the interests of the student body, for example towards the office of the university president, the university administration and professors. It is important to point out the special needs and problems of the students of Paderborn University in the broader societal context and to actively work towards improvements. However, the AStA does not only take over representative tasks, but also helps the students as a permanent contact in case of problems and questions. The AStA is elected once a year by the StuPa. At the end of the summer semester the students of Paderborn University are called on to elect the members of the StuPa. The legislative period starts on October 1st of the year and ends on September 30th of the following year. In addition to the university-political aspects of the AStA’s work, it runs the AStA Copyservice, the Stadtcampus and the DIY Bicycle Workshop. Several times a year we organize large university parties, such as the AStA Sommerfestival, small cultural and political events, as well as various workshops and other education programs. If you get stuck, feel free to drop by the AStA main office at any time.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
