You’re about to have the time of your life.

The student experience at Kempten University of Applied Sciences goes way beyond seminars and lectures! Your excellent degree programme and outstanding career prospects are complemented by the breathtakingly picturesque surroundings in the Allgäu – just bursting with all sorts of enthralling ways to spend your free time. The people here are incredibly welcoming and keen to help make your student days among the best in your life. There are plenty of cool bars and pubs in the town to explore, not to mention legendary student parties and the chance to hang out with the crowd during Allgäu Festival Week. Of course, you can’t compare the scene here with the nightlife of a big city, but we reckon you can’t beat the laid-back familiarity of partying with people you know, taking in local culture, and exploring such breathtaking surroundings. In summer, you can hang out with friends for a BBQ, while snowy winters are surely made for savouring a mulled wine or punch at the Christmas market. Our local region offers endless opportunities the whole year round to get sporty or relax in sumptuous scenery. Make the most of your newly gained independence and sample the many upsides to studying in Kempten!

Would you like to get actively involved in higher education politics? That’s also easily done. Students sit on various committees to get your wishes and demands heard and have a say in the university’s decisions. This is your chance to act as a student representative or a member of Senate or your Faculty Board.
