Disabled students

The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz provides help to disabled students in various forms to ensure that they can study as independently as possible and acquire their degrees without hindrance on the campus. Our range of services is described on this page.

Semester ticket repayment for disabled students

Students with the appropriate “stamp” (supplementary sheet to the disabled person’s pass) can apply to the Autonomous Disabled Person’s Office of AStA for reimbursement of the value of the semester ticket (currently EUR 135). Applications must be submitted by: May 7 for the summer semester and November 7 for the winter semester. See the web pages of the AStA Disabled Person’s Office for the application form, further information, and details of contact persons.

Special mobility aids

Disabled students with an appropriate doctor’s certificate can contact the Traffic Office to obtain a permit to use motorized mobility aids on campus.

Disabled students are given priority for accommodation in the halls of residence of Mainz Student Union. Accommodation with wheelchair access is available in the residences K 3, Oberstadt and Wallstraße. The rooms contain appropriate sanitary facilities, cooking facilities, and furniture. Contact the Department of Student Accommodation of the Mainz Student Union.

Auditoriums/classrooms with limited access
