Jacobs University Students Sport and Fun

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 art 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.

Pre-degree and first-year undergraduate students

Giving you “a home away from home”

At Jacobs University we are dedicated to offer you a comfortable and exciting ‘home away from home’ for you: a place to live, to learn, to personally grow – and to have fun.

As a first-year undergraduate or pre-degree student you will learn and live on our beautiful campus accommodated in one of our four residential colleges.  Each college has its own spirit and a 24/7 Resident Mentor, strongly committed to ensure the health and interpersonal, academic, and social well-being of our students.

Spending your first year on campus together with students from more than 100 nations is a key element of our unique 3C academic education model, which academically and personally prepares young students for growing independence, intercultural competence, and global professional perspectives. This is why living on campus is mandatory for pre-degree and first-year undergraduate students.
