Tradition and innovation are the trademarks of our almost 600-year history. Education and research started in Rostock even 73 years before Columbus discovered America as the university was founded already in 1419. A lot has changed in the meantime. Such as the technical faculty founded in 1951 - the first one ever established at a classical university.
The major scientific departments – business sciences, humanities, engineering sciences, law, medicine, natural sciences and theology – are represented both in research and education at the University of Rostock.
Naturally, studying also means living away from home and moving into one’s own apartment. Compared with other cities in Germany, the rents in Rostock are affordable, even in the inner city and in particular in the popular student’s district Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt („KTV“). Whether you prefer a student dormitory or look for the conventional flat share.
The Campus specialists are contact persons mainly for prospective students but also for students at the University of Rostock. They are regularly trained by the Student Service Center staff and are able to answer many questions on the subject of study. The campus specialists represent the University of Rostock at trade fairs or at school events for study orientation and attend groups of students who visit the University of Rostock.
The university sport offers for students and staff ranges from leisure sport to competitive sport, for everyone who seeks physical or mental compensation for study or everyday working routine.
Since, 1974, Rostock’s nightlife cannot be imagined without it: the LT-Club. Generations of students have celebrated here, regularly from Thursday to Saturday. While Fridays are dedicated to a certain motto, things get really speedy across all musical sectors in the old NDR television broadcasting building, restored in 2003, on Thursdays and Saturdays. Every taste will find its suitable music corner here. Who wants to go out at Saturday night in Rostock goes to the LT-Club! By the way - students pay less entrance! The drink prices are student-friendly too and the large outdoor area is an invitation to relax and supplies hungry guests with tasty food from the barbecue.
