The Student Support Services Münster operates in the legal form of an institution under public law. Our tasks are legally defined in the Student Support Services Act of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia – StWG of 16 September 2014 – and in our statutes.

Corporate management and supervision are the responsibility of two bodies, the Management Board and the Administrative Board.

Management Board
Dr. Christoph Holtwisch is Managing Director of the Studierendenwerk Münster.

Administrative Board
The Administrative Board is made up of employees of the higher education institutions and the Student Support Services, a representative of the public and, last but not least, students, in order to guide the activities of the Student Support Services.
The members of the Administrative Board are elected every two years by the Rectorate, the Senate, the Student Parliament and the Staff Assembly.
