Göppingen Campus: everything within easy reach

On the campus in Göppingen, everything is within easy reach. This not only applies to the close proximity of laboratories and lecture halls, but also to the informal atmosphere between professors, staff and students.

After class, students can enjoy the Café Campus, which is run by students, our own campus cinema, a gym and sauna, a university climbing group in the Göppingen climbing hall and various other groups such as an orchestra and a gliding group. Modern student accommodation, which is comparatively inexpensive, is available close to the university. A large number of places are available here in cooperation with the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart (Student Services Organisation). For full information, please see Studying in Göppingen.

The city of Göppingen is situated beneath Hohenstaufen mountain and its ruined castle, a relic of the mediaeval Staufer dynasty. Find out more about the city in the Göppingen Info-Film, or have a look at the Göppingen"Day & Night" Guide.

Local Sightseeing

From Göppingen, students can reach downtown Stuttgart in less than 30 minutes by train and, in little more time, can even take a trip to the beautiful city of Ulm and view its famous cathedral, the fisherman's village, and other lovely spots.

A brief history

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is one of the oldest schools of Mechanical Engineering in Germany. In 1914, the “Königliche Baugewerkeschule (Royal School of Construction), Department of Mechanical Engineering” was transferred from Stuttgart to Esslingen.

On 1 October 2006, the two universities of applied sciences in Esslingen, the Technical University of Applied Sciences (FHTE) and the University of Applied Sciences for Social Work (HfS) were combined to form a new institution - Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.
