The ISM Campus in Hamburg was founded in 2010 and is ideally located in the HafenCity, near Hamburg’s warehouse district and downtown. The campus currently hosts about 540 students. A special highlight is the large courtyard for relaxation, studying or chatting with other students. A library, an internet room, a cafeteria and a lounge round out the new facilities.

The city of Hamburg offers a wide range of cultural activities including theater, opera, numerous museums and galleries as well as the famous neighborhood of St. Pauli. As one of Germany’s most important economic hubs, Hamburg is also an exciting location to study with outstanding possibilities for internships, business projects and entry positions.

City of Hamburg

With its rough Hanseatic charm and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, Hamburg is a rich blend of diversity. Germany’s secondlargest city is not only one of the country’s most important business centers but also home to many students from all over the world.

A key landmark in Hamburg, the “Pearl of the North“, is its harbor, which has roots dating back to the ninth century. No less famous is the adjacent “Speicherstadt“ warehouse neighborhood, in which coffee, tea and valuable spices were once stored. But that isn’t all that Hamburg has to offer. Residents and tourists alike value the city’s rich cultural life with more than 60 theaters, the State Opera as well as countless museums and galleries. If you prefer to spend your leisure time shopping, Hamburg is the right place for you. Visit the Jungfernstieg and Mönckebergstraße shopping streets or any one of the hip stores in the Schanzenviertel neighborhood and you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Sports fans, meanwhile, can watch the Hamburger SV and St. Pauli soccer teams or the German handball champions HSV Hamburg.

Hamburg’s nightlife also has plenty to offer, particularly St. Pauli’s Reeperbahn, probably Germany’s most famous entertainment district. There are countless bars, pubs, nightclubs and discos to party in. And if you fancy a savory snack after a long night out, why not pass by the traditional Fish Market in the early hours before heading off home?

Hamburg is an attractive city so rented accommodation doesn’t always come cheap, particularly in downtown apartments. That’s why students usually prefer to stay in residence halls or rooms in one of the many communal apartments in St. Pauli or the outer suburbs.
