We are the Studierendenwerk Münster (Student Support Services of Münster)
We assist the approximately 58,000 students in Münster and Steinfurt. Founded in 1922 as a “self-help organisation for students by students”, as a modern service provider with over 600 employees we make a significant contribution to actively shaping the social life of institutions of higher learning. Here we offer and look after 5,600 affordable housing opportunities, provide meals in numerous canteens, cafés, bistros with an average of 15,000 dishes per day, offer more than 120 childcare places for children up to 3 years of age, and inform and advise about BAföG (i.e. the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act), career training loans etc. And in particularly difficult living and study situations our social counselling employees can give help. Moreover, for congress and conference guests of the higher education sector we also offer attractive rooms, extensive service and accommodations.
We are your reliable partner in all phases of your studies
Your interests and needs are always our main focus. In order to be able to study successfully today, students need more and more social support. That’s reason enough for us to realign the way we support students in their social, financial and cultural needs in accordance with the way their living and study circumstances are constantly changing. That’s why students also actively help us to structure our business policy in our supervisory board.
