Aside from the Rectorate and the University Council, the Senate is the highest governing body.
Its authorities and duties are regulated by the university’s constitution (VII, 1 to 9).


Each faculty of the university is represented by

  • one professor
  • one member of the central block of the academic teaching staff
  • one student who is nominated by the committees of the official Austrian Representation of University Students (ÖH).

In addition, the administrational staff nominates three representatives, the outpatient clinic on representative.
