How can I support?

The university is currently urgently looking for buddies to support refugees and help them integrate into the city and the university. Information about our In Touch Buddy programme can be found here.

If you are interested in becoming a buddy, please contact intouch[at]


The city of Wuppertal also provides information on volunteer opportunities in refugee assistance.


The Wuppertal start-up company "WorkStadt" has founded its own "Ukraine Initiative" and offers support for refugees from Ukraine as well as a contact point for volunteers. According to its own statement, the company has networks between, for example, the foreigners authority, the Ukrainian cultural association and local companies, so that important assistance directly benefits the refugee women and children in Wuppertal.

You can find all information at WorkStadt - Ukraine Initiative.
