Study with chronic illness and impairment

By taking up your studies at the University of Leipzig, you are entering a new and exciting phase of your life, which can raise many questions at the same time.

The Social Counselling Service advises students with chronic illnesses and/or disabilities on issues such as organising their studies, coping with their studies, financing their studies, applying for compensation for disadvantages, finding suitable accommodation and many other needs-related topics.

We focus on your personal situation and work together with you to find the right tips and solutions. If you wish, we can put you in touch with counselling centres, authorities and self-help groups.

By employing a volunteer, students can be offered hourly support in their daily study routine. Many things are possible - from reading to taking notes in lectures to accompanying students on campus, to the libraries or to the refectories. Feel free to contact us and we will discuss your need for support.

You are welcome to take advantage of our individual one-to-one counselling sessions to discuss together how you can organise and master your studies without worries.
Counselling is free of charge and can be done anonymously. Of course, we are bound by professional secrecy. You can find all current office hours and information here:
