Karlsruhe: a good place to live and study
The city of Karlsruhe is an important commercial and administrative center in south-west Germany with some 285,000 inhabitants. It is situated in the Rhine valley, on the border of the Black Forest, and has a comparatively mild climate with warm summers. Its proximity to France and Switzerland offer many opportunities for excursions.
Karlsruhe is also well-known as Germany's "Technology Region", as a lot of state-of-the art research is carried out here, and many international companies and well-known research institutions are located in, around, or close to Karlsruhe.
Eight higher education institutions with about 30,000 students in total make Karlsruhe a young and modern city, which is a good choice to study and pleasant to live there. After studying, you can enjoy life as you wish - relaxing at one of Karlsruhe's many cafés or pubs or visiting the local cultural attractions.
Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is ideally located within the city’s green belt and at the same time very close to the town center (10 minutes to walk). The university buildings, library, student canteen, and residence halls are all close together on campus. Students can reach all important places on foot within a few minutes.
