Campus & Housing

The campus of Jacobs University has a lot to offer: Classrooms, laboratories, residential colleges and cafeterias as well as a theatre, a cinema, and sports facilities provide all that is necessary for a healthy balance between studies and leisure activities. Security is taken care of as well: A security firm monitors the area around the clock.

For those who want to leave the “little” town to visit the “big” one: The center of Bremen is only a few kilometers away. Information about the city of Bremen can be found here.
