The universities' disabilities representatives' tasks are regulated in the Bavarian Higher Education Act (BayHSchG, Section 1, Art. 2, Para. 3):
"Universities shall take into account the special needs of students with disabilities and shall appoint a representative for students with disabilities whose tasks are regulated in the basic rules. They shall ensure than students with disabilities are not disadvantaged in their studies and that they can make use of all the university has to offer without outside help where possible."
