Advice and Information

In order to make a good decision about a course and location of study, advice and detailed research are helpful. Even if you are already a student, questions may arise. On this page you will find various advisory services at TUM that will help you with questions about studying with a disability or chronic illness. You will also find external contact persons for various questions.

Personal Advice – on Campus, via Video Call or Telephone

We offer you the opportunity of advisory services personally on campus or via video call or by telephone. You can make appointments for a personal consultation using this request form or by writing to us at handicap(at)
