Stu­dent as­so­ci­ations/uni­ver­sity groups at UPB

Students at Paderborn University have the opportunity to form student associations. These associations, generally also referred to as university groups, contribute to the formation of political will in accordance with § 53 (3) of the NRW Higher Education Act. Contributions to the formation of political will can be made through parts of the group's work and/or orientation.

The prerequisites for founding a university group are

  • the drawing up of a constitution, which can be closely based on the model constitution.
  • A list of founding members including original signatures of the founders.
  • a statement in the statutes of the way in which the political will is formed.
  • Only registered students of UPB can be full members of a university group. Membership is not transferable. Membership rights can only be exercised personally.

The submitted constitution will be checked by the administration. If UPB has no objections to the foundation of the university group, the group will be recognised and is thus entitled to use UPB rooms free of charge for group events. UPB does not provide any further financial support for the university group.

Once a year, recognised university groups are requested to submit a feedback form on the current status of the university group between the end of the summer semester and 15 October. If this feedback is not received, recognition is suspended.

Student initiatives

In addition to founding a university group, it is also possible to found a student initiative. A student initiative differs from a university group in that it does not have to demonstrate political will. An initiative must participate in the fulfilment of the tasks of the student body and prepare an annual accountability report. Initiatives may receive financial support from the AStA. To found a student initiative, please contact the Presidium of the Student Parliament.


We are the Juso University Group Paderborn! With the aim of moving life at the university, we not only campaign for improvements in education, social and science policy, but also develop our own positions on all political issues that have to do with the lives of students.

With campaigns and events, we make the students' voices heard in public and bring our positions into the political debate.

We are open to everyone who is interested in future-oriented and emancipatory politics at Paderborn University.

One looks in vain for an arthouse cinema in Paderborn. This is why the association Programmkino Lichtblick e.V., established by students of media studies in 2003, has made it its mission to give presence and validity to films excluded from commercial cinema. By using historical film prints, we also want to sensitise people to the specific materiality of the medium of film. Each semester, we create independent film series on topics such as film noir, queerness or "dreams." The films are usually presented on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm in a nationwide unique cooperation at Pollux by Cineplex Paderborn. Alongside your studies, you can try out a wide range of practical media activities in the fields of cultural mediation, cultural management and marketing, and at the same time get to know other students interested in film and make contacts in the film and cinema industry. You don't need any special film knowledge for this, interested people are always welcome!

We meet on Mondays from 1 to 2 pm in room E.2116 at the university.

We support the new Wing students right at the beginning of their studies by organising and managing the orientation phase. During this time, some uncertainties are clarified, but if new questions arise, we are there to help and advise. By building up the alumni network, it is also possible to get involved after graduation.

Contact with companies
We enable students to establish business contacts through company visits, workshops and our company contact fair "LOOK IN! We also have a job exchange where job advertisements and contacts for various internships and job offers are passed on in relation to the degree programme. This is how we network the Wing'ler of Paderborn University with companies from the surrounding area.

Fun events

The voluntary association Eurobiz has existed at Paderborn University since 1989 and was founded at that time by returning Paderborn students who had missed help during their own semester abroad. So they decided to join forces and make life in Paderborn easier for upcoming exchange students and enable them to have a good time.

Today, students from all faculties are still involved with Eurobiz and organise a large number of events through which many personal contacts and friendships with exchange students are formed. Many of these friendships survive the time spent together in Paderborn.

If you are interested in making friends worldwide and having a lot of fun with international students, just come to our office and join Eurobiz! We meet every Tuesday during the lecture period at 8 p.m. in SP2 0 101. Or you can just drop by our weekly international get-together and enjoy a drink in an international environment. We look forward to seeing you!

You can also find news about us and our activities on our homepage, Facebook or Instagram. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Wir sind die Zeitung der Studierenden der Uni Paderborn und gehören schon seit vielen Jahren zum „Inventar“ der Universität Paderborn. Alle vier Wochen veröffentlichen wir eine Ausgabe und berichten darin über das Campusleben, Hochschulpolitik und alle möglichen Themen aus Politik, Gesellschaft und Umwelt. Dabei kann sich jeder aus jeder Fachrichtung in jedem Bereich einbringen.

Wir sind eine zusammengewürfelte Redaktion, und haben neben Redakteur:innen von den Medienwissenschaften auch welche aus der Informatik dabei. Auch die Einsatzbereiche sind vielfältig: Social Media, Redaktion und Recherche, Interviewführung, aber natürlich auch Fotografie, Layouten und Website-Building gehören dazu.

Das Highlight ist für uns das alljährliche AStA-Sommerfestival, an dem wir fotografieren und die Künstler:innen Backstage zum Interview treffen.

In der UNIVERSAL bekommen Studierende einen Einblick in journalistische Arbeit von der Konzeption bis zur Veröffentlichung unserer Zeitung – dazu gehört die Suche nach Themen, die Planung der Ausgabe, dann die Recherche und zuletzt das Layouten.

Zu lesen gibt es uns online, aber auch in der Mensa, in der wir mehrmals die Woche die Zeitung auslegen. News und die Links zu Artikeln findet man auf unserem Instagram-Account.

Wir treffen uns jeden Dienstag um 13.10 Uhr im Raum H4.242, kommt gerne vorbei!

KurdS-PB ist eine seit dem 30. April 2008 bestehende und seit dem 14. August 2009 offizielle Hochschulgruppe der Universität Paderborn. Die Gründer*innen wollten damit eine zentrale Anlaufstelle für kurdische Studierende bieten, um sich gegenseitig über Studium und Freizeit auszutauschen und das Universitätsleben kulturell mitzugestalten.

Seit dem wächst die Hochschulgruppe und die Aktionen nehmen nicht nur mit der Häufigkeit, sondern insbesondere auch Qualität der Beiträge und Informationen zu. Dazu zählen Informationsstände über die Hochschulgruppe sowie Internationale Wochen, bei denen die kurdische Kultur, Geschichte sowie Sprache im Vordergrund steht.

Die Hochschulgruppe wurde auf 3 Grundsäulen gegründet, die noch immer wesentlicher Bestandteil sind:

- Nicht Parteipolitisch

- Religionsübergreifend

- Gewaltfrei

Unsere Ziele: - Vermittlung der kurdischen Kultur & Geschichte - Orientierungs- und Integrationshilfe für Studierende - Förderung der Toleranz und Akzeptanz zwischen den Studierenden der Universität Paderborn.
