Student Life

Student Life Cover


The university is located in the heart of the cultural hotspot of Kreuzberg, the former home of the punk scene, with many resident artists, musicians and designers mixing with start up entrepreneurs and travellers from all over the world. Inspiration and recreational diversity can be found easily, from flea markets to artist run galleries, small design boutiques, supply stores and a plethora of bars and cafes. In a contemporary and historical sense, creativity and experimentation is interwoven into the very fabric of the city, making it an ideal study environment.

In terms of liveability, Berlin is the ideal student city. Finding an apartment here is easier and more affordable than in many other major European cities. The general cost of living in Berlin also suits the student budget.


Parallel to an exciting city lifestyle, more then a third of Berlin is composed of lakes and parks, so nature is easily accessed. Centrally located, Berlin also offers easy access to the rest of Europe.



For creative people, a visit to this store is a unique experience. With shelves spanning an area of almost 3,000 sq. meters filled with over 30,000 different articles, shoppers can browse freely and find whatever they need.
