Studentenwerk Dresden performance figures
As a public law institution (German: Anstalt des öffentlichen Rechts), Studentenwerk Dresden has to strike a balance every year. The following performance figures show how the year 2021 looked from a statistical perspective for Studentenwerk Dresden as a company.
The total number of students served by the Studentenwerk Dresden was 42,200, a similar level to the previous year (2020: 42,300). By contrast, the number of staff employed by the Studentenwerk fell to 559 (2020: 594).
Student Dining Services
In the Student Dining Services Division, there was a renewed decline in sales due to the lack of student attendance at universities as a result of the pandemic situation. Total sales in 2021 were € 4 million (2020: € 6.08 million). Revenues in the dining halls totaled €3.17 million (2020: €4.74 million) and in the cafeterias, revenues in 2021 were €0.83 million (2020: €1.34 million).
A total of 8,955 BAföG applications were processed in the Student Financing division in 2021 (2020: 9,266). The number of applications has thus continued to decline. However, the total amount of funding disbursed rose again to €49.3 million (2020: €46.3 million), and the funding ratio of students served also increased to 16.5% (2020: 15.9%).
A total of 6,633 dormitory places were available in the Studentenwerk's 40 dormitories in Dresden, Tharandt, Zittau and Görlitz. In 2021 as a whole, rental income of around €17.9 million was generated (2020: €17.5 million).
Counseling and Social Affairs
In the area of social counseling, including telephone and e-mail counseling, there were approximately 1,799 counseling sessions, about a quarter fewer inquiries than in the previous year (2020: 2,441).
The number of student legal consultations was also lower than the year before at 735 (2020: 985).
In the Psychosocial Counseling Center, on the other hand, the number of contacts increased significantly to a total of 5,945 (2020: 4,851).
The number of childcare spaces available at Student Services daycare centers was unchanged at 240 in 2021.
A total of €88,164 in funding was used in the culture department, of which project funding for five projects totaled €3,011.
As the Dresden Student Days had to be cancelled, as in the previous year, the Dresden student clubs were once again awarded special Corona funding.
