As the highest-ranking body of the StudierendenGesellschaft, the general assembly comprises regular members (students currently enrolled at Witten/Herdecke University) and supporting members (alumni and externals). It decides on appointment, dismissal and discharge of the supervisory board; amendments to the articles of association; model contracts governing tuition payment for studies at Witten/Herdecke University.

The executive board is appointed by the supervisory board and currently consists of four students plus two further students in the capacity of a project manager. It is in charge of day-to-day business, accounting and the preparation of annual financial statements and the budget for each fiscal year.

The supervisory board comprises eleven members, six of them UW/H students. Among its duties are the supervision of and advice to the executive board as well as its appointment, dismissal and discharge. Furthermore, the supervisory board approves the annual financial statement and budget.

The social committee aims to avoid undue hardship related to the implementation of tuition payment contracts at Private Universität Witten/Herdecke.

The conciliation office regulates all legal disputes that may arise from contracts on tuition payments as a first recourse. Only if a final decision of the conciliation office is not accepted are the parties involved free to take legal measures.

Two executive board members represent the StudierendenGesellschaft among the UW/H Associates. The associates are the owner of UW/H and decide on the highest level about the long-term development of the University.
