Die Österreichische Hochschülerinnen- und Hochschülerschaft (ÖH) ist die gesetzliche Interessensvertretung aller Studierenden, die gesetzlich verankerte Mitbestimmungsrechte an den Universitäten hat. Jede und jeder Studierende ist mit der Zulassung und der damit verbundenen Entrichtung des Mitgliedsbeitrages (derzeit € 18,-) Mitglied der ÖH.

Unsere Hauptaufgabe ist die Vertretung der studentischen Interessen gegenüber den Lehrenden und der Öffentlichkeit sowie Information und Service für Studierende. Wir engagieren uns aber auch in allgemeinpolitisch relevanten Bereichen, was in unseren Referaten Ausdruck findet. Um die Interessen der Studierenden bestmöglich vertreten zu können, gliedert sich die ÖH in insgesamt drei Ebenen: Bundesvertretung, Universitätsvertretung und Studienvertretung. Im Rahmen der studentischen Selbstbestimmung entscheiden die Studierenden selbst, welche Kolleginnen und Kollegen die Vertretung ihrer Interessen wahrnehmen sollen. Bei den ÖH Wahlen werden alle zwei Jahre die Mandatarinnen und Mandatare von allen Studierenden neu gewählt.

Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt

The Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt has been futureoriented and dynamic from the day it was founded. Today it is Carinthia’s leading educational and research institution. It opens its doors to the whole world and thrives on interculturality and people whose minds know no frontiers.

In contrast to the mass universities, the structure and the manageable scale of the university have positive effects in many respects: on research and its organisation, on teaching operations and on internal administration. These benefits are compounded by the specific character of a genuine campus university. This compact structure is of considerable advantage for the organisation of student life (lecture halls, library, refectory, student dorm etc) and for cross-disciplinary research activities.
