Residential Colleges

Jacobs University is a residential university, which means you do not only study on campus but also live and learn in a social setting in one of our four residential colleges. The colleges are close to the lecture halls, research laboratories, sports facilities, the theater, cinema, student bar, or café.
At Jacobs University we are committed to making our campus and the colleges a comfortable and happy ‘Home away from home’ for you: a place to live, to work, to grow. Like a big extended family, campus staff is happy to help you with your personal and professional challenges and ambitions. Social activities ranging from dinner parties to large cultural events are the hallmark of our vibrant campus community.
All colleges on our beautiful green campus are home to a mix of ages, nationalities, and cultures. Undergraduate students receive their own furnished bedroom in a modern two-bedroom apartment, where you will share bathroom facilities with a student from another country.  

**Check out an apartment and meet some of our students on the virtual campus tour - starting right here in your college room.**
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 choose which of the four colleges you would like to live in. Check out the colleges on facebook Krupp College, Mercator College, College III, College Nordmetall  or see our Virtual Campus Tour.

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.
