Office for students with special needs
Lengthy illnesses and disabilities can be a significant impairment of your studies. The office for students with special needs at Freie Universität Berlin offers confidential counselling for all matters regarding chronic illnesses and disabilities.
There, students get assistance with applying for necessary technical and room accommodations and compensations for disadvantages to ensure equal access to courses, exams, and internships. The office for students with special needs also initiates measures to further advance equal participation for and inclusion of all students in all areas of the university.
The studierendenWERK Berlin and the General Students’ Association of Freie Universität Berlin also offer special needs counselling services. The studierendenWERK can be of particular help when it comes to finding accommodation and financing disability-related additional expenses.
