Advice and support services within and outside the university

Don't you know what to do?

At the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena, in Jena and the surrounding area there are contact and advice centers for various situations, which can give you advice and help. Below you will find a list of diverse institutions that deal with equal opportunities issues. For example this list includes services for families, meeting centers, counseling centers for discrimination situations or help in cases of sexual harassment or domestic violence. We don't lay any claim to completeness. Some of the websites are also only available in German language which we still published here.

The staff of the Equal Opportunities Office will also be happy to help you find suitable contact persons for your concerns.


Within the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena, we work closely with the Equal Opportunities Division of the Vice President of Young Researchers and Equal Opportunities, and the Graduate Academy. Another important cooperation partner for us is the Thuringian Competence Network for Gender Equality (TKG), whose office is located at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena.

Since many of the concerns of women at the university cannot be solved at the university level alone, cooperation with superordinate bodies such as the Federal Conference of Equal Opportunity Commissioners (bukof) and the State Conference of the Universities (LaKoG) is an extremely important aspect of our work. Good contacts also exist with the respective Equal Opportunities Representatives of the Ernst-Abbe-University, the city of Jena and the Thuringian state government. 

Some webpages are only available in German language, which we still link for completeness.
