The AStA of the THM

The AStA is the executive body of the student body. We represent all students of the THM outside and inside the THM. Our tasks cover numerous subject areas, for example

  • Semester ticket
  • Bicycle rental system
  • (Legal) advice
  • Parties & Welcome Week
  • Student council networking
  • Management of all finances of the student body
  • First point of contact for problems

and much more.

The AStA is organized in units. These are grouped into departments. Each department is assigned to a member of the Board of Management. More details about the departments and the units can be found in the tabs. The minutes of the AStA meetings are in the AStA Moodle course.

The AStA Board manages and coordinates the work of all units of the AStA. It represents the AStA externally and is the only one who can make legally binding declarations on behalf of the AStA.

The AStA board consists of the chairperson and the department heads of the AStA. Within a department, each department head (RL) supervises and coordinates the work of the units. The chairperson is responsible for the management of the board. He*She is the first point of contact for all inquiries to the AStA. The chairperson is therefore also assisted by the secretariat for answering inquiries.
