With its various facilities, the university offers you many opportunities to get involved outside of your studies and to use the services. We would like to present a selection to you here.

Intercultural, political and social engagement

At the University of Bamberg there are many associations and groups that you can get involved with. This ranges from working groups that are very close to a field of study to religious university communities to university groups of trade unions and political parties.

In addition, the student representatives at both university and faculty level offer you the opportunity to get involved. The work is about supporting other students and representing student topics within the university and faculty.

Tandem program

International understanding, the integration of foreigners and hospitality are popular topics that many people like to talk about. With the International Office's tandem program, you also have the chance to do something and make your own personal contribution.

They help foreign students to find their way around Bamberg and the university and have the opportunity to learn a lot about their country of origin and the local culture.


There are numerous ensembles at the university where committed and qualified musicians are welcome. The spectrum ranges from a university choir to a university orchestra to the university's big band or jazz-pop combo.

The individual music groups are coordinated by the music pedagogy.
