Residents' Council of the Student House (HSV)

The Residents' Council of the student house is elected from and by the group of the student residents. It keeps contact with the Studentenwerk, organises house assemblies and parties, manages the students' pub and sometimes arbitrates in case of dispute. The HSV council is run by volunteers. Suggestions and cooperation are always appreciated!
To find out the name of the HSV council members, consulting times and places of assembly please look for notices on the bulletin board in the student house or ask the student house management.

Tutor for International Students

As part of the Tutoring Programme for International Students in Studentenwerk Accommodation, the student house tutors offer regular consulting times. Some tutors attend to more than one student house—please pay attention to where the consulting times take place!

Ghada Khamassi | Miriam Riemann, StwH

"Hello, my name is Ghada Khamassi. In November 2013, I moved from Tunisia to Germany. My subject of study at Leibniz Universität is mechanical engineering. Since March 2017, I am your tutor at the student houses Bischofsholer Damm and Menschingstraße. My native language is Arabic, and I also speak German, English, French and Turkish. If you have any questions about your student house or living in Hanover, I will be there for you. I regularly organise cultural events like visits to cinemas, excursions, parties and barbecues for you. Just check my notices on the bulletin board!
I'm looking forward to meeting you and to having a nice time together! Of course, I'm open to your suggestions for events, too. I'm also there for your problems of everyday life. You can find me during my consulting times in the Bischofsholer Damm student house, or you can send me an e-mail."
