Open Lecture Hall

The Open Lecture Hall project was successfully launched in the autumn semester of 2016. The project is aimed at refugees and students at the University of Bern. With this project, the SUB would like to offer refugees access to education and society and the opportunity to get an insight into students life at the University of Bern. Similar projects can be found at the universities of Basel, Zurich and Geneva.

It is for all female students* at the University of Bern in their Master's programme who are considering an academic career. They are supported by assistants or doctoral students in the same or a related field of study.


SUB KiStE - Kind, Studium, Elternschaft (child, study, parenthood) is a network for students that are also parents to exchange experiences. A meeting takes place every semester. An online forum is used for the exchange of (future) student parents with specific questions and tips.


LGBTQ+ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer/Questioning and all other people who feel like they belong to the queer community. For the SUB, diversity is of utmost importance. That's why, the SUB is committed to ensuring that all people can study at the University of Bern free of discrimination.

Help in case of sexual harassment

The #metoo debate and the events at ETH and the University of Basel have shown that sexual harassment is omnipresent - also at universities. The SUB fights all forms of discrimination and is committed to the protection and integrity of all. Individual boundaries must be respected and adhered to.

Cross-university study

The support fund is used to support projects carried out by SUB members or SUB groups. By supporting student engagement, students can contribute their ideas to everyday life at the university which makes studying even more exciting!

SUB Social Fund

The SUB Social Fund supports SUB, MVUB members, and mobility students which find themselves in acute financial emergencies. In order to tackle these financial difficulties, the Social Fund Commission can raise up to CHF 5000 in form of a scholarship or loan.
