European Student Affairs Conference

Student Services in the Digital Age - 13th Polish-German Colloquium 2022

European student affairs event, the 13th Polish-German Colloquium, took place at the Lodz University of Technology and was organized in joint efforts by LUT and DSW and supported by ECStA. July 5-8 2022 Lodz (Poland)


Student affairs and services in higher education have entered the digital era before the pandemic, but the last two years have jump-started a process that will change services for students like nothing else.

Digitalisation has proven to be both promise and challenge for higher education and student service institutions alike. It is a good time to take a close look at how technical developments fundamentally change student services, how new tools can improve campus life, and how digitalisation boosts learning, innovation and student well-being.

The potential of the digital era for student services was discussed by experts from Poland, Germany, France, and many more in the following thematic panels:

  • Effects of the double crisis of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine on the situation of students
  • ​Student Services in a Post-Covid World?
  • Effects of the Covid19 on crisis communication, student information and orientation
  • Development of digital infrastructures in student services
  • European Student Card: the emergence of a European digital student services infrastructure
  • Digital Student Servies: innovative projects and good practice
