RWU thrives on student participation. A large number of student initiatives have therefore been set up to help shape the university. Through their involvement, students have better career opportunities and the chance to think outside the box. Studies by the state of Baden-Württemberg also show that students who are involved at the university are more likely to successfully complete their studies.

Here you can get an insight into the learning café, try out VR and test our green screen in the film studio. You will also find out about support services for starting your studies.
