Jacobs University’s green and tree-shaded campus covers an area of 34 hectares. The architecture combines modern designs with gabled brick structures built in the last century. The campus features buildings for teaching and research with a total of 5,600 square meters of laboratory space equipped to the highest standards. Students live on campus in one of four residential colleges.
The Campus Center is a defining feature on campus and home to the Information Resource Center (IRC), Jacobs University’s digital and reference library. Many of the main conference events and community activities are held at the Campus Center throughout the year. Right opposite the Campus Center, you can find the Interfaith House – a place visited for worship by many different religions on campus. The Interfaith House is also often used as a concert venue for the Jacobs University choir.
The latest addition to the campus is the Sports and Convention Center (SCC) where the annual festive Graduation ceremony takes place. Indoor soccer, basketball, hockey, cricket, badminton, volleyball, or handball can be played at the SCC, which also houses a gym for students, faculty, and staff.
