Accident Insurance

Students (those who are properly enrolled) enjoy legal accidence insurance during their education and further education at the university. The same applies for way from home to university and back.

Due to this, all accidents have to be announced to student secretariat with the faculty's safety commissioners’ signature without delay. The relevant form is available here. A list of relevant contacts is provided here.

The legal accident insurance in charge of the University of Rostock is the accident insurer Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Guest students, senior students or vacation course participants in preparatory courses are included into the legal accident insurance.

Information on insurance protection are given in the brochure “Legal Accident Insurance Protection at Universities” published by the German Legal Accident Insurance (DGUV). (
