At the same time, Hofmann lamented the inadequate pay of university employees, who contribute significantly to the success of TUM. "They form the backbone of TUM - even if it is currently being severely bent. Inflation is driving up the cost of living. The rigid corset of the collective wage agreement of the federal states gives us no opportunity to act in a performance-oriented manner. We are experiencing a new "brain drain" from future-oriented universities to municipalities that can pay significantly better. Political action is urgently needed here for more performance-related pay," demanded the TUM President.

Student representative Isabella Hennessen and President Hofmann agreed in calling for the accelerated construction of apartments for students. Hennessen warned: "The lack of housing is an obstacle that prevents talented people from coming to Munich. More needs to happen here! This is one of the most pressing problems." Hofmann appealed to the state government to make plots of land available at low cost so that the 12,000 additional homes needed could be built with the help of private investors.
