Absence (Section 5 TV Stud III)

Student employees must request prior approval from their employer for any absences. In the event of an unapproved absence, you are not entitled to payment. If a tutorial does not take place at the beginning of a semester, the institute offering it must be notified. You can then be assigned other (equivalent teaching) responsibilities.

In order to easily access your workplace with any mobility restrictions, the following route and building descriptions are useful and provide additional information on finding the most accessible route: Accessibility and a barrier-free campus at TU.

Out of order elevators, obstructions, or insufficient lighting can be insurmountable barriers to individuals with a disability or chronic illness. You should send a message to the fault report office who will then resolve any such problems.

If your workplace is unexpectedly blocked due to, for example, events or construction work, your supervisor or Strategic Space Management can help you to find a substitute room/lecture hall short-term.

The Representative of Students with Disabilities and Chronic Illnesses offers personal advising. We are also happy to further assist you further to work without any barriers.

Accident Insurance

All students are insured against accidents to and from the University as well as within the University free of charge. In case of an accident: Tell the admitting physicians that it is an “occupational” or “university” accident. If you are not brought to a hospital but to a registered doctor, make sure that it is a so-called “Durchgangsarzt” or “D-Arzt” (accident insurance consultant). The accident insurance pays for medical treatment and, in the case of permanent injury to health, for rehabilitation and possibly pays an injury pension.

Accommodation Allowance

Student assistants can apply for an accommodation allowance if they have rented a room or apartment and are no longer eligible for BAföG. Generally, this means that they have exceeded the maximum funding duration. Either parents or the BAföG Office are responsible for providing an accommodation stipend until the maximum funding duration has been reached. If you apply for an accommodation allowance, it is advisable to include the notice from the BAföG Office declining you a stipend.

Your own income and that of your spouse as well as the number of children and rent amount all determine whether you will receive an allowance and if so, how much. If you have a shared flat, you should indicate that each tenant is responsible for their own costs and that there is not a common fund.

The accommodation allowance is paid out beginning the month of the application, even when the application is submitted at the end of the month and not all documents have been submitted. The required documents can be submitted afterwards. Applications and further information about the accommodation allowance can be acquired from the Housing Office or your local borough’s citizens’ services. Student assistants with a child can apply for an accommodation allowance (at least for their child) even if they are still eligible for BAföG. Student assistants with a child are recommended to not apply for a housing stipend from the BAföG Office as children are not included in the consideration for the stipend from the BAföG Office.
