A new Home away from Home
Students lovingly call the campus “the bubble” – an international English-language microcosm in the middle of Europe, where you will live and learn with students from over 100 countries. After a semester at Jacobs, every corner of campus will be connected to a fond memory. Be it the group of seats at the corner of the quiet study area where you spent an entire night working hard, laughing with your friends and ordering pizza at 3 a.m.
Be it the small hills on Campus Green that you and your friends used for sledging down on cafeteria trays when the first snow had fallen in winter. Be it the tree in front of your college, where you hang up your first Bulgarian friendship bracelet for luck. Living and learning on campus mean that your friends will soon feel like family and that the campus will become a new home away from home.
Whenever visitors come to campus, they are impressed by the beauty of the spacious, green 34ha campus. The large campus green in the middle of campus and the soccer field attract students to sit together, to sunbathe and to play sports outside.
Dive into Diversity
Allowing students to foster their interpersonal and intercultural competencies is an important component of Jacobs University’s educational mission. As a Foundation Year student, you can take full advantage of the many learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. Get immersed in the intercultural campus environment, take part in the various sports activities offered, or become a member of one of the many social, cultural, political, academic and entrepreneurial clubs on campus.
The residential colleges on campus offer a safe, interactive and inspiring living and learning experience: You will receive a private room in a two-room apartment and share common areas and a bathroom with a flatmate, who is typically of a different nationality.
The in-college cafeterias offer breakfast, lunch and dinner and are a great space to meet, chat and relax with your friends. All-day access to the state-of-the-art recreation center on campus and the well-equipped activity areas such as the theatre space, sports courts, a dancing room and the paper studio is just one of the perks of living on our beautiful campus. The campus is located in close vicinity to the city center of Bremen, a maritime multicultural and entrepreneurial city in the north of Germany.
