As an educational and research institution with responsibility for society as a whole, the University of Regensburg works towards an environment in which equal opportunities across all dimensions of diversity are lived with the aim of equal participation, appreciation and promotion of all members, regardless of their individual characteristics (gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental abilities, social origin, nationality/ethnicity, religion) and discrimination as well as sexual harassment are avoided. On this page we provide an overview of those institutions of the UR that are particularly committed to inclusion and accessibility, equality, equal opportunities and against discrimination and sexual harassment and offer advice on these topics.
It goes without saying that you can study successfully at the UR with a disability! To support this, the help center for students with disabilities provides an overview of information, tips and contact details on their website:

The UR Anti-Discrimination Office serves as a coordinating point of contact for questions, issues, and problems related to diversity, discrimination and sexual harassment; it contributes to the further development of the UR diversity agenda.
