Student Life & Housing

Student Life

The European Study Center is housed in a handsome villa centrally located in a safe residential area of Heidelberg. On campus students enjoy the beauty of a historical building without foregoing any of the modern conveniences one would expect to find on a university campus. When the weather is nice, the spacious inner courtyard and garden is a favorite place for students to study or chat. The European Study Center offers WiFi internet access, a library, computer lab, laundry facilities, a TV room and a student lounge. Classes at the SRH University Heidelberg are only a short ride away on reliable public transportation. Shopping and other activities are even closer!

A wide variety of excursions and company visits are an integral part of the summer program.  Students participate in excursions to places such as the Heidelberg and Hambach Castles, a tour of the John Deere plant, and daytrips to Frankfurt and Strasbourg, France.   

The ESC also has a wealth of knowledge regarding travel within the region and beyond, so students experience the most of Europe during their stay, especially given the affordable and convenient transportation options within the city and country!

Housing

Students are housed on campus in the Villa Krehl, which is nestled in one of Heidelberg's most charming neighborhoods. Students will benefit from big city living without feeling overwhelmed by traffic and commuting and will enjoy all the luxuries in their newly renovated home away from home. The rooms are comfortably furnished with a bed & linens, clothing armoir, desk, lamp & chair, and a mini-fridge. The residence is located in a safe neighborhood where necessities like grocery shopping or a visit to a pharmacy are just a short walk away. The more extensive downtown pedestrian shopping area is within reasonable walking distance or a short tram ride away.

Students will be able to use the shared cooking facilities at the European Study Center at any time. Several bakeries and grocery stores are within a few minutes' walk making it easy to cook and eat at home.  Should the student residence fill, students will be placed in homestays.
