The contact points for students at LMU

Students who experience discrimination can contact LMU's counseling and outreach services. In confidential discussions, counselors can provide you with information concerning formal procedures and advise on possible courses of action.

General support and outreach services

Anti-discrimination and conflict officers advise and support students who — at the hands of another LMU community member — have experienced a violation of their personal rights, in particular due to discriminatory behavior on the grounds of race or ethnic origin, gender, religion or beliefs, disability, age, or sexual identity.

Intercultural Counseling assists international students with any culture-specific issues related to their studies that may be causing them difficulties or negatively impacting their academic success and wellbeing.

International students can contact Intercultural Counseling in the event of any breaches to the National Code for Studying Abroad at German Universities. The code aims to maintain and further improve the quality of support for international students. The central idea is to give international students the same rights as German students, and to offer them any help they might need.
