Jacobs University Campus Life Students

Jacobs University does not only offer an excellent academic education but also many opportunities for student activities outside of the classroom. The variety of over 50 student clubs and more than 100 student-driven events during the year such as cultural festivals like the Deepavali Festival of Lights or Chinese New Year, and educational events like Country Information Days, are the hallmark of our vibrant campus community.

An important component of Jacobs University's educational mission is to foster student growth and development of interpersonal and intercultural competencies which are increasingly important in an interconnected globalized world.

On-campus everything is within easy reach: 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.

Facilities such as TheaterSpace and MusicLab – created and built by students – bring together students who want to be a part of the performing arts. From concerts by J-Capella, the university choir, to theater plays and annual big shows like “Piano to Forte”, the “Oriental Dance Show” or the “Spotlight” talent show to the Culinary Club – there is something for everyone’s artistic side.
