In the strictest sense, all Faculty students belong to the student body of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The core of the student body is a diverse group of committed students looking after student interests in a variety of working areas.

The aim pursued by the student body is, in particular, that of improving study conditions, representing students’ interests before the Faculty (e.g. the Faculty Board), and promoting exchange with groups within (e.g. AStA – the General Student Committee – and other student bodies) and outside the university. It also serves as a point of contact for general and specific questions regarding studies and everyday life at the university, and aims to invigorate university culture through various different programs.
