Student Board (StuV)

StuV is the representative student board of the Karlshochschule. We are comprised of students from all semesters and programs driven to improving the Karls student life. Student representatives are voted in democratically either in-person or online at the beginning of the winter semester to serve a 2-semester term. We also have an open-door policy, welcoming other students to voice their concerns and constructive feedback at meetings.

We take your student feedback and materialize them as, e.g. the StuV student kitchen on the 2nd floor, gender neutral bathroom opportunities, and even karaoke nights. StuV is also responsible for planning and running the student side of O-Woche, or Orientation Week, for all new students at the beginning of each winter semester. Sometimes we also work on planning semester trips, talks, and parties.

From an academic perspective, we make a point to work with the Karlshochschule administration. StuV has various committees its representatives partake in, including: Examination, Faculty Boards 1 and 2; Quality Management. Part of our job within these committees includes having a say in which new professors are hired and which improvements can be made to change the everyday life of our university. In order to do the best job we can, we hold test lectures for new professors and teacher evaluations every semester.

Other activities StuV is responsible for are taking care of the StuV Kitchen as well as the student lockers for rent.

Do you have ideas on how to improve the Karls? Or are you interested in renting a locker?
