We are the elected members of the current StuRa plenum. We discuss and decide almost everything that affects you as a student at HTWK Leipzig.

If the door to our office in the Geutebrück building (room G101) can be opened, you can simply come in. There is definitely someone there for you during our office hours. Or just send us an email to sprecherinnen (at)
