The University of Münster (WWU) condemns the Russian attack on Ukraine. The University prides itself on its cosmopolitan worldview and advocates resolving conflict through peaceful dialogue. It stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people in these difficult days.
 
The WWU has discontinued all research projects with its Russian partners until further notice. The same applies to the exchange of students and researchers to and from Russia.

Shortly after the invasion, the University reached out to all Ukrainian students at the WWU to express its sympathy and assure them that the WWU is ready and willing to offer support. We are aware that Russian students and researchers at the WWU have their own concerns and questions. Of course, the WWU does not make them collectively responsible for the Russian regime’s unconscionable violation of international law.

The University of Münster offers a broad range of advisory structures targeted at various groups: the International Office as the first point of contact for international students and researchers, the Graduate Centre for doctoral candidates, and the Personnel Department for University employees. In addition, counselling services for refugees are established in all areas.
 
Below you will find additional information and links to advisory services.

Crisis Fund

The WWU Crisis Fund provides financial support to students, doctoral candidates and researchers of the University of Münster who, through no fault of their own, have suffered hardship as a result of the war in Ukraine. And for those students, doctoral candidates and researchers who have been forced to flee from their country, funding will be used to enable them to continue their studies and research in Germany at the WWU Münster. Anyone directly impacted by the war is eligible to receive emergency aid irrespective of their nationality or origin.
