Student Parliament

Welcome to the website of the Student Parliament (Stupa) of Freie Universität Berlin. This site is administered by the Stupa's meeting management.

What is the Stupa?

The Student Parliament (Stupa) consists of a total of 60 elected parliamentarians who can be elected by all student members of Freie Universität Berlin each spring.

The Stupa elects the representatives of the General Student Committee (AStA) of the FU as well as the members of committees, decides on the budget of the student body and on general student affairs.

The Stupa does not decide on study and examination regulations and many other fundamental matters affecting FU students. For more information, please visit here.

At its constituent meeting, the student parliament elects a meeting management consisting of five members. The meeting management of the student parliament convenes the meetings of the student parliament, determines the date of the meetings, sets the agenda, manages the meetings of the student parliament and writes a protocol.


The elections for the FU Stupa are organized by the Student Electoral Board (StudWV). More information can be found on the StudWV website:
