University Elections

Why should I vote?

The annual university elections take place in the summer semester. The votes submitted there legitimize the student representatives - including us, the Fachschaft. However, you also vote the student convent members and our student senators. You can read about their respective role at the university here.

Your vote is very important to us. We represent you in several committees, oversee structural changes affecting all students (for instance changes concerning the exam regulations) and negotiate with third parties like the student services provider. Due to past efforts, university life has improved significantly. These include:

  • shuttle busses between Feki and ERBA
  • consistent enforcement of the compulsory attendance abolition
  • improvements to the menu served in the ERBA canteen

The higher the voter participation is, the stronger is our standing against boards and committees in the university structure, since it illustrates how many students support us. Therefore: Use the opportunity to improve the studying conditions for you and all your fellow students and go vote!

Your Engagement in Higher Education Policy

In case you want to get in touch with higher education policy beyond voting, there are multiple ways to do so. Some of them will be listed here. Updates on the student representation ("Studierendenvertretung" or "StuVe") are available on

  • You can attend the general assembly held once per semester, where the student representation publishes news and information on current topics concerning students in Bamberg. Moreover, you can ask your own questions in this assembly. There will not be any lecture during this event enabling everyone to attend it.
  • In the university management talk ("hochschulöffentliches Unileitungsgespräch") executives of the university respond to questions by the student representation and all present students.
  • Obviously, the student boards are happy to gain new members as well. Most sessions are public and will be announced on the corresponding sites. You can learn more about these committees here.
