Where students chill out

The university is situated at several locations: Central Campus is right in the middle – the main railway station and the city centre are within walking distance. Culture, pubs and restaurants are also close by. A special feature is the Media and Business Campus in nearby Dieburg, a listed historical monument, with sound and film studios and its own cinema. Students at the Faculty of Design in Darmstadt study in the Artists’ Colony on Mathildenh he, a declared World Heritage Site, with a view over the city.

Central Campus has state-of-the-art lecture halls, faculty buildings and learning centres. University Tower is h_da’s futuristic landmark.

Student House bundles important service facilities and is a meeting place for students
and university members. The lounge, café and terrace of the campus restaurant fill the campus with life well into the evening. In the restaurant, there is also live cooking. On the green space next to University Tower, sports enthusiasts can flex their muscles on the “climbing frame” or the slackline. Seating areas – landscapes designed by students – are
inviting places to study, chat or relax. It is here, too, that the university celebrates its Campus
Festival with live music and comedy acts. h_da also offers its students a broad sports programme – from aikido to Zumba.

Darmstadt is a young city with three universities and almost 50,000 students. They see to a vibrant nightlife and cultural scene and benefit from special discounts: with the Semester Pass devised at h_da, you can use public transport throughout the whole of Hesse free of charge. In addition, your Culture Pass gives you free admission to the State Theatre, independent theatres and the Hessian State Museum.
