The President is the principal executive officer and chair of the governing body at htw saar and also represents htw saar in the wider community. The President is assisted by two Vice Presidents, each of whom manages a particular area of university activity and represents htw saar externally (Vice President for Academic and International Affairs and Knowledge Transfer). The President and the two Vice Presidents form the President's Office and they are assisted by their support staff and various functional units at htw saar.

The central administrative department is split into five sections: human resources, facility management and building services, finance and accounting, student services and legal.
