Student media

Have you got the desire to try out? You are not at a loss for words? Have you always wanted to do something with media? Then take a look at our campus radio station. Or put your nimble pen to the test at the Akrützel and bring a breath of fresh air. We are always looking for new people with passion and bubbling ideas!

Campus radio Jena

Campusradio Jena is a project of the student councils of both Jena universities. If you are interested in research tasks, live moderation, creating contributions and broadcasts, then this is the right place for you.

Student newspaper Akrützel

AKRÜTZEL (founded in October 1989 and first published in early March 1990) is the leading university newspaper in Jena. The newspaper is dedicated to current problems at the Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena and the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, communal topics, university political issues as well as culture and student life. Therefore, you can let off steam thematically and always take a critical stance.

The editorial staff consists of about 25 students as well as a full-time editor-in-chief. The AKRÜTZEL appears every second Thursday during the lecture period with a circulation of 5,000 copies. The newspaper is distributed free of charge at the Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena and the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena as well as in some cafés and the university bookstore. The AKRÜTZEL is one of the three highest-circulation and oldest student newspapers in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Student magazine: the "unique"

In the heart of Jena, a unique student magazine is being created: "unique", the intercultural student magazine for Jena, Erfurt and Weimar.

We ask about the circumstances of intercultural coexistence in Jena, Thuringia and worldwide: What experiences do students have abroad? What contribution do universities and students make to integration and multicultural coexistence?

The reporting of "unique" does not end at the gates of the universities. That is why our editorial team endeavours to draw attention to social and political problems and to present different perspectives by means of contributions from all over the world.

  • Public editorial meeting: every Thursday during the semester, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
