Our cosy, compact campus

Diversity and networking drive us forward

A compact campus, cosy atmosphere, wide range of degree programmes, strong practical relevance, and our international, open-minded and friendly culture at the university make campus life at Kempten the soul of networked diversity – in so many respects.

Covering more than 53,000 m² along Bahnhofstrasse to the south of the town, classes at Kempten are held in buildings of different architectural styles – from the university’s early years right through to the latest state-of-the-art annexes. Our spreading campus is a popular meeting point well beyond timetabled classes. The sun loungers designed by our students, areas of lawns and trees, the cafeteria and the library are always popular hang-outs. Our main hall is one of the key venues for events in Kempten.

Welcome to our feel-good campus!

We look forward to getting to know you! There are plenty of chances lined up. If you’ve got any questions, then our friendly Student Advisory Service is your first and best point of call:

  • “At Kempten University of Applied Sciences, it’s easy to make good contact with international students, for example via the Buddy Programme or in the Cultshare Clubwould be very happy to help! You go on excursions together, and there are lots of events where international students mix with locals, which I find really nice.

    What’s more, if you’ve ever dreamt of spending time abroad as a student, the International Office (IO) provides excellent support that makes it really straightforward to organise an internship or a semester at a foreign university. You are given very good advice and guided step-by-step through the application process, and if you have any questions at all, the IO is on hand to help.”

  • “Good things come in small parcels!” is how I’d sum up studying at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. The smaller number of students means closer contact. Even when we were unable to spend time on campus in person, Kempten and its surroundings were a great place to study. In the winter you can go skiing, in the summer hiking or bathing at the many lakes in the countryside, which you don’t even need a car for. Whether you share a flat, have a room in halls, or live on your own – everyone can find their niche here. I particularly value the friendly atmosphere – you meet someone you know wherever you go.”

    - Juliane Schell (Studying for a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering – Technology and Sustainability)
  • “It’s a quiet life in Kempten , everyone’s very friendly, and the Allgäu offers picturesque nature all around. I decided to move from Lower Saxony to Kempten to study, as I’d heard many positive things about Bavaria. The campus at Kempten University of Applied Sciences has an excellent layout, and it’s very easy to find your way around the faculties. It’s always cosy hanging out with the other students on campus in the sunshine. I knew that the groups in the faculties would be smaller, which would make it easier for my to learn. The professors go to a lot of effort and can tailor the lectures more individually. I live with two other people – I found the room easily in a flat-share advert. We chat, cook and even sing together sometimes to take a breather from everyday studies. In my free time, I do a lot of activities with the exchange students, whom I got to know on the university’s Buddy Programme. This helps me to improve my English and learn a bit about other cultures. I am very happy here and couldn’t imagine studying anywhere else.”

    - Jasmin Schmidt (Studying for a bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management)
  • “I’m in my fourth semester studying International Management in Kempten, and I’m very pleased with the choice that I made. You can find a flat or room very quickly – if you’re lucky, with a view of the mountains. The atmosphere on campus is friendly, and you feel very welcome, as the university isn’t too huge. That means you quickly make connections and also get to know students on other degree programmes.”
