Become a resident advisor!

What is a resident advisor (RA)?
The student self-administration is made up of all the tutors in a student residence. This exists in all Karlsruhe and Pforzheim rental properties. It is a largely independently organized association of tenants who have taken on a specific tutorship in order to represent the interests of the residents. The Studierendenwerk itself provides the external framework for this. The members of the student self-administration can contact the Studierendenwerk at any time with ideas, suggestions or proposals for enriching student life in the student residences.
