Memories for a lifetime

Campus Life


Jacobs Students come from all over the world to live and learn at Jacobs University. Our student body represents 112 nations with an average age of 21 years. They form an ambitious campus community whose internationality is unprecedented in Europe. Jacobs University’s green and tree-shaded 80-acre campus provides much more than buildings for teaching and research. Jacobs undergraduate students live on campus in modern single rooms in one of four residential colleges. Each college has its own dining room, recreational lounge, study areas, and common and group meeting rooms. A Student Activities Center, various sports facilities, a cinema, a music studio, a student-run café /bar, concert venues, and our Interfaith House ensure that you will always have something interesting to do.  Why don't you let our students show you around campus in our Virtual Campus Tour?


Jacobs University does not only offer an excellent academic education but also many opportunities for students outside of the classroom. The various student-driven social and cultural activities encompass events throughout the year, and student clubs range from arts to sports and community groups. An important component of Jacobs University's educational mission is to foster students’ growth and development of interpersonal and intercultural competencies which are increasingly important in an interconnected globalized world.
