Jacobs University Host Family Program

Information for Interested Host Families

All Jacobs University undergraduates live on campus. Many of them have never been to Germany before and have never had the chance to meet German people or experience the culture. But Jacobs University want students to be part of the Bremen community. This is why we introduced a Host Family Program to establish personal interaction between our students and families in Bremen. Many families in Bremen have volunteered to act as host families. These families are obviously very familiar with life in Bremen, but they are also interested in other cultures and nearly all are speaking  English and other languages. We are trying to match them with those students who are interested in participating in this program. 


For interested Host Families: please contact us at: 
studentservice [at] jacobs-university.de or 0421 200-4208

Interessieren Sie sich für fremde Kulturen? Sind Sie gern mit jungen Menschen aus anderen Ländern zusammen? Kennen Sie Bremen und haben Sie Freude daran, jungen Menschen etwas von Bremen zu zeigen? Dann lesen Sie bitte weiter! Im September 2001 begann das Studienjahr für die ersten Studierenden aus 48 Nationen an der Jacobs University, damals noch International University Bremen. Zur gleichen Zeit wurde das Patenschafts-Programm ins Leben gerufen. Dieses Programm ermöglicht den auf dem Campus lebenden Studenten, persönlichen Kontakt zu Bewohnern Bremens zu knüpfen. Vielleicht möchten Sie einen oder mehrere Studierende betreuen? Haben Sie Lust, diese für beide Seiten positive und wertvolle Aufgabe zu übernehmen?

Falls Sie oder jemand aus Ihrem Freundes- oder Bekanntenkreis auf dieses Programm neugierig geworden sind, würden wir Ihnen gern persönlich weitere Informationen geben:

Please remember that this program does not imply any finacial help. Rather, it is about the relationship you create together! Does this sound interesting to you? Then let us know by completing the attached Host Family Form. You should know that we have a limited number of host families for the incoming students, therefore – if you are interested – you should complete the Host Family Survey as soon as possible.
