A diverse and healthy range of meals, student rooms and apartments in our residencies, information and regular campaigns on student residency, concrete support from BAfoeG or alternative offers for the financing of studies, diverse counseling offers, for example psychosocial counseling as well as child care: The Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main supports students daily to enable them and facilitate their studies. In order to finance these services, we also use public funds and contributions from the students in addition to the incomes from our sales and rents.
Between 2005 and 2022, the Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main has been able to implement more than 2,000 additional residential hall units. Nevertheless, affordable student residency in the Rhine-Main area is a scarce commodity and further residential halls are urgently needed. This makes us all the happier that the Max Kade Foundation from New York supported two residential buildings in Frankfurt am Main and in Wiesbaden with a total of $1.2 million. It is our interest to be able to significantly expand the residency offer with further public and private funding, so that students have the chance to study and live here in the future.
Our residency campaign together with our universities, some AStas and other university towns has been very successful for many years. The aim of the campaign is to motivate private landlords to provide additional housing for students.
Currently, our team is developing an emergency aid fund, which is intended to provide financial support to students who are in need at short notice, and therefore hopefully will help to ensure that the study is not interrupted due to lack of money. In the meantime, we have received a donation sum of more than 70,000 euros. All willing to help are welcome to join us!
Our residential hall tutors are a team of foreign and German students, who are there to answer the questions of international students in particular and to help if they are in trouble. We partially finance the tutoring program for students in our residential halls through court and prosecutorial money launches, which we specifically address.
However, with all these means and efforts, not all needs can be satisfied, and not all students can be helped. Therefore, wherever possible, we try to provide further opportunities for financing our services. Help us - so studying succeeds!
Finally, I would like to draw your attention to our long-term commitment to the association "Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.". Every year about 2,000 children and adolescents develop cancer in Germany. That is why the Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main has been collecting donations within the "Adventsessen" campaign during the pre-Christmas period for more than 30 years. To our delight, more than 220,000 euros have come together during this long period of time.
