University Elections SoSe 2023: 23 – 25 May

The elections are over!
The student university elections have ended, new FGVs and the 18th StuPa have been elected and we are really exhausted, but happy. Thanks to all the helpers before and during the election days, who looked after the polling station and counted. We wish all those elected an exciting year in the HoPo and good luck with their mandate!

What are we even voting for?

Once a year, the university elections take place, where a new Student Parliament (StuPa) is voted for.

Based on these votes, the 17 seats of the StuPa are distributed to the lists. Ultimately, these 17 members will then decide, for example, on the students’ financial resources, make political decisions according to the majorities and elect the General Students’ Committee (AStA).

These are the official dates for the vote:
