Explore our four colleges
All colleges on our beautiful green campus are home to students of mixed nationalities and cultures. As our pre-degree or undergraduate student, you will live in your own furnished room within a modern two-bedroom apartment unit sharing bathroom facilities with another student.
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 give your preference in which of the four colleges you would like to live in.
Become a team player and put your college into the lead
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 art 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.
Pre-degree and undergraduate students
Giving you “a home away from home”
At Jacobs University we are dedicated to offer you a comfortable and exciting ‘home away from home’ for you: a place to live, to learn, to personally grow – and to have fun.
As an undergraduate or pre-degree student you will learn and live on our beautiful campus accommodated in one of our four residential colleges. Each college has its own spirit and a 24/7 Resident Mentor, strongly committed to ensure the health and interpersonal, academic, and social well-being of our students.
Living on campus together with students from more than 100 nations is a key element of our unique 3C academic education model, which academically and personally prepares young students for growing independence, intercultural competence, and global professional perspectives.
On our beautiful and secured university campus you can find lecture halls, research laboratories, excellent sports facilities, the campus theater and cinema, as well as the student bar and café within easy reach.
From your first day on you will be part of the close-knit Jacobs community. Meeting all the world in one place, you will broaden your horizons, make memories for a lifetime and find your position in a culturally diverse community. Becoming part of the global and positive Jacobs ‘family’, you will soon feel at home.

Accommodation on campus is prioritized for pre-degree and undergraduate students. For graduate students, Jacobs University maintains a sufficient contingent of off-campus student accommodation in the city of Bremen.
