Ticket for bus and train

Purchase JugendTicketBW (VVS)


Parking space is very limited at all three campuses. We therefore recommend that you use public transport.

In Esslingen, there are covered parking spaces available. They are run by PBW Parkraumgesellschaft Baden-Wuerttemberg mbH. You can find further information about the PBW here.

Parking space is available for a fee in Goeppingen in the nearby multi-storey carpark in Jahnstrasse. Students can obtain long-term parking tickets at reduced rates.

Parking permits for student parking spaces on the GoeppingenCampus can be applied for online on the University’s Intranet as soon as you have access. Spaces are limited.

Introductory mathematics course – get fit for your studies

The introductory maths course takes place two weeks before the semester begins and is designed especially for new students on technical and management courses at Esslingen University. The course enables you to brush up your mathematical knowledge and skills and obtain a sound foundation.
