Education

Education is a personal right. The educational mission of the liberal democratic and social constituional state to which the university is committed, creates scope for the development of the personality beyond ideological and economic interests.Rationality and argumentative analysis, as well as openness for the perception of interests and the determination of standards of judgement, contribute to the maintenance and further development of the university’s autonomy.The university strives for the formulation of joint public statements on important issues, and thereby secures the support of its allies.

Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences is a "commuter university": many German students live with their families outside of town. On contrary, the majority of international students live in student dorms or private rooms.In a city like Frankfurt private rooms are a spare good (and mostly expensive, too - from € 300 onward).The university itself does not run student dorms: according to state law dorms are provided by the so-called "Studentenwerk" (a public corporation) or private and semi-private companies/associations (€ 180-250).
