Being a student is alot more than reading books and attending lectures - there's a whole spectre of activities alongside. Our univertsity offers students a diverse programme: summer music festivals, international days, rowing on the Danube, skiing races and a range of other sports.
Performance orientated students can join the university choir, the Big Band or two drama groups, whilst politically active students can become student representatives in the student convention. Additionally, there are many other clubs as described below.
We are your student representatives and are there to answer any questions and to help solve any problems you may have.
As student representatives, we also have the right to vote in the faculty council. Therefore we can address your issues and needs directly to the faculty itself.
The student convention:
- Bauer CHristoph
- Hofmann Joseph
- Hölzel Regina
- Lesny Andreas
- Nagel Joel
- Schülke Björn

Campus For Christ (CFC)
Christian Believers Group
- for all students
We are a group of students from a range of degree courses, who meet every Monday on the DIT campus. We aim to exchange thoughts and views through Biblical discussions and talks.
We are aware of the intellectual challenge that we face, when trying to combine the thoughts and beliefs that we have in life. For example, HDU helps us as students to recognise and deal with the challenges of everyday life, but we feel that it is also important that critical questions about life can also be answered e.g. the meaning of life, death, faith, ethics etc... We aim to tackle these questions in our meetings.
