The Student Council of Heilbronn University

University-wide the General Student Committee (AStA).

The General Student Committee (AStA) is the executive body of the student body at the university and is responsible for external representation. It represents the student "government" or the actual student representation in the narrower sense.

The AStA is elected by the student parliament and consists of a chairperson and a number of units for different areas of responsibility.

Money, money, money... that's what the Finance Unit is all about.

One of our tasks is the preparation of the budget. This is where the distribution of the money to the individual units and departments is determined. So we make sure that your €25.00 goes to the right projects: We are responsible for making sure that the money is spent wisely and that all students of the university benefit from it. Furthermore, we are responsible for the accounting of the student body and are the contact person for all departments and student councils in financial matters.

Do you have any questions or want to join the finance department, just drop us a mail.

Connecting Students from all over the world.

In order to make it easier and more enjoyable for our international students to settle in and stay in Heilbronn or at our university, one of our tasks is to connect them with our students. The goal is to form an interface to promote intercultural exchange at the university.

We look forward to welcoming you back in person at our scheduled events after the Corona break. 

If you have any ideas or suggestions or would like to become a part of our team, feel free to contact us by email.

Our unit stands for fun, joy and good humor!

We plan various excursions for the entire university for the students and have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs on the trips. The focus here - as the name suggests - is on sports and culture. We vary from semester to semester with our excursion destinations, so there is something for everyone. Especially for incoming students, these excursions are a great way to make new contacts and get to know student life from a different perspective.

At AStA and student parliament meetings, we report on the current situation and upcoming events. For us it is important that the students also have a say in which excursions are planned. For this purpose, regular polls are conducted so that every vote counts.

Since Heilbronn University has many campuses, it is important to us to ensure that all students at Heilbronn University, independent of the location, have the opportunity to participate in our rides.

The excursions naturally adapt to the seasons and offer students the chance to meet new people in the context of an excursion.

Popular trips include a musical outing, a trip to an amusement park, a trip to the Stuttgart Spring Festival, a trip to the musical, or in the winter, a trip to the Christmas market in Strasbourg. A pub crawl is also offered each semester.

In Corona times, the outing options have changed somewhat. For example, online activities such as a virtual freshman brunch, online Escape Room, cooking events, or an eSports tournament are increasingly offered.

The activities in the winter semester 2021/2022 are based on the federal regulations for the purpose of the pandemic. Currently (as of October 2021), events will be held in attendance, in compliance with the 2G/3G rule. All current information will be updated regularly by us on the site.

You are welcome to send us your ideas, criticism and praise by mail at any time.

First and foremost, we relieve and support the employee in marketing and communication by, for example, taking over parts of the social media tasks.

In addition, we take care of larger marketing projects that require more time, such as creating a new flyer, etc.

Another area of responsibility is to take care of the appearance of the AStA at events, such as the freshman welcome, general meeting, etc..

If you have any suggestions, ideas or criticism for us, just send us an email.

The department for politics, also called the external department, takes care of the concerns of the student body at the state political level. The head of the department is on site and represents the student body of Heilbronn University in current issues of the student body in the state parliament as well as in discussions with the Minister of Science, Research and the Arts.

If you have any suggestions, ideas or criticism for us, just send us an email.

In the past, the Press Department took care of verbronxt. and makes sure that you were always kept up to date on everything important and unimportant that was happening at AStA, at the university and in our Bronx.

However, the press office will be relaunched. The new focus is in area success stories and research from your fellow HHN students, staff and faculty. You will uncover these stories, interview those involved, and derive press releases from your notes.

In addition, you build a LinkedIN channel on which you then publish the success stories and research of your fellow students. Besides LinkedIN, a podcast is also conceivable, in which you can conduct real interviews.

In addition, you will support the Executive Board in general press relations. This means that you will work together on interview requests from external and internal sources.

At AStA events you are also at the start and collect raw material for marketing (picture and video recordings). If necessary, you can also write a press release for the event.

You work closely with the marketing department of the AStA and coordinate your editorial plan with them. Except for the coordination of the topics, you have a free hand and can give free rein to your creativity.

Your goal is to show HHN students what's going on at HHN and inspire them through success stories.

If you have any suggestions, ideas or criticism for us, just send us an email.

On the one hand, the unit deals with topics related to equal opportunities and diversity and works closely with the Senate Committee for Equality and Diversity and the university's Equal Opportunity Officer to this end.

The unit plans projects for the LGBTQIA+ community and is the contact person on the student side. The organization of events on the social level also fall within the scope of activities, such as the organization of a blood donation campaign or a DKMS registration campaign.  

The officer is also responsible for the area of student services. The tasks include taking up the interests of the students in matters of dormitories, catering situation (i.e. refectory, cafeteria and vending machines), counseling services and the like.

The department meets regularly with the Heidelberg Student Union Board of Directors and the respective department heads in order to achieve the best for Heilbronn University and its students.

In addition, the head of the unit must attend the Administrative Board meetings of the Student Union and also present the results of the work in the unit to the AStA.

Due to the special construct of Heilbronn University, it has proven useful to also hold the meetings at the various campuses in order to also make direct inspections of problematic areas with the Studierendenwerk here and to create a larger mouthpiece through the student councils, since they usually have more direct contact with the respective students of the campuses.

So if something bothers you, there is something that can be done better, just write us a short mail and we try to implement your wishes and suggestions.

At the respective location, the student council (StuV)

The student representative chairpersons (StuV chairpersons) represent the student president at the campuses of the university. Each university location (Heilbronn, Künzelsau and Schwäbisch Hall) has its own student representation. As the name suggests, it represents the interests of all students at the respective location.

This is done through the various units of each location. It is in constant exchange with the student councils and the student associations and organizes, among other things, larger events for the location with them. It also takes care of the recreational program (such as sports, university band, student initiatives, etc.) and ensures that resolutions of the student parliament are implemented at the site.

The International Office takes care of the needs of the International Students and Incomings. Every semester, the International Office organizes cultural and intercultural events and introductory events for the international students such as the Welcome Brunch, Tandem Café, Secret Santa, game nights or more, so that the internationals and incomings can get closer to each other and, ideally, get in touch with German students.

Excursions are also planned and carried out by the International Department. The focus is always on helping internationals and incoming students to integrate into their new environment. The International Office is also always available to answer general questions about campus life.

If you have any questions or suggestions, you can contact us by mail.

The Department of Sports is responsible for the continuation and expansion of university sports across all locations. For this purpose, it is particularly important to involve those responsible for the individual sports programs in order to bring about changes together with them and to make them transparent and usable for all students.

In particular, new seasonal sports offers are to be introduced in the future. For this purpose, new contacts must be made, as well as new cooperations entered into, in order to obtain the best possible conditions for the students.

Feel free to email us with any questions or suggestions.

The bus is always late or too full?
Switching to the train just never fits in time?
You have questions about the semester tickets?
You have an idea how it would be better in bus and train?

Then we are the right contact persons for you!

We help you with all issues concerning bus and train. We communicate your concerns and needs to the politicians, to the transport companies and to the Heilbronner Verkehrsverbund (HNV), with whom we are in direct contact, and represent our interests as students.

We sell the HNV semester ticket at the Heilbronn campus at the beginning of each semester.

We are actively involved in improving the public transport connection of the Bildungscampus and the Sontheim campus. In particular, we would like to change the poor accessibility of the Bildungscampus from Sontheim and from the main train station and are in contact with those responsible. In particular, we would like to see a significant improvement in the bus service and regular stops for all regional trains at the Heilbronn-Sülmertor stop (which is right next to the Bildungscampus!). We are also keeping a close eye on the tight parking situation at Bildungscampus.

Due to the Corona pandemic, our work has unfortunately also been restricted. Because: In online semesters and without face-to-face teaching, there are also no students who might have problems with bus, train or parking. However, since public transport is always planned for the long term, our work continues with analyzing the plans and representing student needs to them.

For our work in the unit, we are therefore still looking for students who have a desire for interest work, exchange and networking in the public transport sector.
