Counselling Service

Counselling Service provide you with support in the decision-making process, with study issues and in planning your educational career.

With effect of March 20, Humboldt-Universität, like any other science and research institution of the city of Berlin, changes into the so-called emergency presence mode. All university buildings remain locked. Access is restricted to those employees who are responsible for securing systemic relevant areas. All other members of the university are fulfilling their official duties in the home office as far as possible. All consultation hours (in person or by phone), events and guided tours are cancelled. You can reach us by e-mail, we are working on a phone service. We ask you to assume that answers will be delayed. We hope that we are able to provide you with a full service again soon.
