Excursions and Campus Activities

The Summer Camp is also a great opportunity to broaden your horizons, and get to know a new culture. Our tutors and supervisors organize guided excursions off-campus, so you have the chance to explore the beautiful, historic city of Bremen. There is plenty to do on campus as well! Play table tennis or pool, watch a movie with your friends, or take advantage of our sports facilities – football field, basketball, tennis and beach volleyball courts, gym, and more.

At Jacobs University, we are dedicated to make our campus and its residential colleges a comfortable and exciting ‘home away from home’: a place to live, to learn, to grow, and to have fun. You will live in a private bedroom with a shared bathroom in one of our four residential colleges on our beautiful and safe campus. The lecture halls and research laboratories are within close reach. All colleges have a student cafeteria where you will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our international cuisine offers something for every taste.
