As campus university with two well connected locations, close to attractive recreation possibilities in the environment and closely integrated in the cultural live of the city, the university provides the best conditions for studying and working as well as a diversity of job chances for graduates. Together with modern information technologies, comfortable hostels and housing for guest lecturers, the neighbouring institutions of the Max Planck-, the Fraunhofer Institute and the German Aerospace Center constitute a fertile ground for innovations and scientific communication. And those who want to found a company with their new know-how can find support and office space in the local center for technology. And what`s more, the quality of life is also high: The charming position of Stuttgart between forests and vineyards, the Swabian Mountains and the Black Forest with their attractive leisure activities and a wide range of cultural events - from ballet to variète - make living here a pleasure.
Graduates of the University of Stuttgart are prepared for the international competition by stays abroad and an increasing number of master and bachelor courses of study in English language. The share of international students (20%) is far above average. Right from their start in Germany foreign students are taken care of with a special welcome program. An alumni program is designed to help stay in touch with the university after graduation.
Most of the dormitories, which are all mixed, are located on the campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. All dormitories can be easily reached within 20 min. from the city centre campus by S-Bahn (commuter train). The single bedrooms are equipped with a table, bed, chair, wardrobe/closet, bookshelf and a washbasin. There is a common kitchen for all the members of an apartment or of a floor. You must bring your own dishes with you or buy them in Germany. There are also toilets and showers on each floor. Bed linen and coverlets can be purchased in the janitor's office for 45 EUR. Most dorm rooms have internet access.
