Student Life

Campus life

Campus life at the University of Bremen and the Technology Park Bremen has a great deal more to offer, though, than just studies, research, and work. Sports facilities like the Sportbad Uni pool and the offerings of the University Sports Association Verein für Hochschulsport are open to all citizens. The local green areas of Blockland, the Stadtwald and Bürgerpark, as well as the recreational lake Unisee, are all in the close surroundings of the University, but by no means detract from the feeling of participating in the citys Hanseatic flair.
