Joining in student activities

University life

There is more to the student life than classes and exams. The Uni has many groups and initiatives in sports, music, movies, theater as well as university communities, associations, and interest groups.

You will have many opportunities for taking an active part in campus life while studying at the University of Stuttgart. Its student union (stuvus) keeps track of student groups and initiatives and their registration. Any student initiative must first be recognized as a university group [de] by stuvus. Recognized groups enjoy benefits like booking rooms in campus facilities at no charge or being authorizes to put up informative materials on campus.
