The team of professionals working on Inclusion/ Inclusive Policies at Goethe-University

Inclusion? Contact us!

There are various persons of contact, offices and centers on the issues of living and studying with a health impairment and on disability and inclusion, --  at Goethe University itself but also in Frankfurt am Main and in our region.  Some of them offer advice and general orientation, others specialise in certain issues or kinds of impairment.

On this page, you will find a selection of persons and university institutions to contact. We do not intend the following list to be final or exhaustive. 

Generally, we advice students to consult the advisors for students with health issues, if they feel they (might) have to cope disability or health-related needs that need to be accommodated in the academic context. In this way, there is an opportunity to discuss the situation thoroughly and organise adequate support, before problems pile up and escalate.

If you would like to stay informed about studying with health issues/ disabilities, sign up to our newsletter (in German) here:
