They all contain free personal hygiene products (sanitary pads and tampons) that you can use in case of an emergency. A diaper changing table is located in the restroom on the ground floor (next to room B2).

Support for individuals on the Autism Spectrum
We provide a tutor who offers support for every individual on the Autism Spectrum studying at the Faculty of History. His support includes providing organizational and formal information (e.g. assistance with course registration, using the USOSweb platform, providing information and contacts to other places providing support within the University). Please remember that the tutor’s responsibilities do not include psychological support. Formal diagnosis or registration at the Office for Persons with Disabilities (BON) are not required to use the tutor’s assistance. It is possible to arrange an in-person appointment at the Faculty or an online meeting with the tutor. Please note that appointments are necessary in order to meet with the tutor at the Faculty.
