Studying with Impairment*

Prospective students and students usually face special questions and challenges in choosing a degree program and when taking up and completing their studies. This also applies to prospective students and students with a disability, a chronic illness or similar impairment.*

The Student Counseling Center of TUHH aims at enabling all students to participate in studies and in student life as independently as possible and with equal opportunities. You are welcome to seek advice on this issue during our consultation hours. If you cannot visit our consultation hours, you may also make use of our phone consultation or contact our Infothek by mail or e-mail.
