    Student Life on and off Campus

    Our campus is located within walking distance of the historic town center. The cafeteria, located directly on the Rhine, offers both warm and cold meals, making sure no one has to study on an empty stomach. Right in front of the cafeteria is one of the highlights on campus (and in Konstanz): our very own beach bar, where students and staff go to kick off their shoes and have a drink at the end of the workday. We also have a student-run café on campus where you can meet your friends for a very reasonably-priced cup of coffee.

    On the weekends, students have many leisure options: explore Konstanz and its surroundings, go hiking in the Alps, or take a short trip to neighboring Switzerland, Austria or Liechtenstein. Or how about a weekend getaway to Italy or France?
