At Jacobs University we are dedicated to make our campus and its colleges a comfortable and exciting ‘home away from home’ for you: a place to live, to learn, to personally grow – and to have fun.
This is why all of our pre-degree and undergraduate students do not only study but also live and learn in one of our four residential colleges on our beautiful and secured university campus with lecture halls, research laboratories, excellent sports facilities, the campus theater and cinema, as well as the student bar and café within easy reach.
Social activities ranging from dinner parties to large cultural events are the hallmark of our vibrant campus community. You will soon make new friends with students coming from all over the world.
Become part of the Jacobs University “family” and feel at home. Our campus staff supports you and helps to master all of your personal and professional challenges and ambitions.
Explore our four colleges
All colleges on our beautiful green campus are home to students of mixed ages, nationalities, and cultures. As our student, you will live in your own furnished room within a modern two-bedroom apartment unit sharing bathroom facilities with another student.
Each college has its own servery, where you can enjoy international cuisine with your fellow peers. There are study areas, group meeting rooms, and a recreational lounge in every college.
Once you have been accepted to Jacobs University, you can give your preference in which of the four colleges you would like to live in.
Become a team player and put your college into the lead
Over the course of the years, each college community has developed its own character, its own version of a real ‘Home away from home’. Students feel especially connected to their home college and their college mates, a spirit that can be felt particularly during sports and arts competitions.
Each of the colleges also organizes a wide variety of student-driven events during the year such as large cultural festivals like the Deepawali Festival of Lights or Chinese New Year, and educational events like the Global Issues Forum or Country Information Days.
Krupp One of the smaller colleges with a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.
Mercator Popular among students who are involved in the arts.
College III The place to be, with a sociable and athletic community.
Nordmetall The biggest and newest college with a calm and friendly community.
Catching the Jacobs spirit while enjoying off-campus living in Bremen
Graduate students do not live on campus but equally participate in the many social and cultural activities and countless events.
You benefit from the various facilities on campus ranging from our Student Activities Center, numerous sports facilities, a cinema, a music studio, a student-run café/bar, or concert venues to our Interfaith House. There is always something interesting to do. In addition, the Graduate Student Association (GSA) offers a framework for social and professional activities to Graduate students.
