The administrative board advises and supervises the managing director. The administrative board decides on all fundamental matters insofar as responsiblity is not conferred to the managing director. Among other things, it also decides on the budget and appropriation of annual results. In addition, the administrative board is responsible for the extension and restriction of tasks of the Studierendenwerk, assumption of loans, purchase or sale of property, determination of student fees and foundation of companies.

The administrative board consists of three professors or academic employees, four students and one public figure.
