Our topics and goals:

European Networking

We want to create long-lasting connections of our Student Union to other universities,

to achieve mutual advantages by exchanging ideas and solutions of common problems.

We want to improve the inclusion of international students into our student life at KIT by reducing language barriers at AStA and university groups.


We will campaign for the possibility of microwaving food that students bring with them to the refectory, similar to what is done at ETH Zurich.


In exchange with other universities, we want to find the best solutions for improving e-learning at KIT.

Additionally, we demand free and barrier free access to scientific results for all students.


We want to campaign for low-cost local and long-distance transport for students throughout Europe with a European Youth Card. 

The Nextbike Zone needs to be expanded to include

the “Campus West”.

Student financing and housing

Studying has to be affordable for everyone. 

Our goal is a dignified standard of living for all

students. A further expansion of 

dormitory capacities are necessary.

Who is Volt Europa?

Volt is a movement with the goal of bringing Europe closer together.

We are pragmatic. 

We do not follow any specific ideology but try to make efficient decisions based on approaches which were already successful elsewhere. 

We are paneuropean. 

Intercultural and scientific exchange plays an important role in university life. Through our unique network with other Volt university groups it is possible to overcome national boundaries and thereby apply the best-practice-principle most efficiently.

We are progressive!

We see change as a chance which has to be met with open and solution-oriented approaches. Therefore we are open to the changes of our social and universitary environments. Nevertheless racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination are still present problems at universities. We stand for personal freedom and full acceptance of the personal definition of every human being and for a diverse and inclusive university.
