The University of Stuttgart is saddened by the devastating earthquakes in the Turkish-Syrian border region. We feel with those who have been affected. Our thoughts are especially with the numerous students from Turkey and Syria, who are the third and seventh largest groups of international students here at the University of Stuttgart, as well as with their family members and friends.
If students or employees have relatives in the affected regions and need someone to talk to, International Office of the University of Stuttgart offers help. The team can be reached by email during open office hours and by phone at +49 711 685 68566. Students at the University of Stuttgart can also contact the Psychotherapeutic Counseling Center of the Studierendenwerk.
For those who would like to support the people in the earthquake zone with donations, please visit the website of the German Federal Foreign Office for aid campaigns.
