Social and Cultural life

Weingarten offers a whole array of cultural events and sporting facilities for students. The fact that there are two colleges of higher education apart from the University of Education guarantees an impressive range of cultural and sporting activities (e.g. a swimming pool for which students have a discount). The Students Union co-ordinates and organises student activities such as concerts, films, lectures and parties and there is ample opportunity to get involved in student associations. The local cinema 'Linse' offers an interesting choice of films, in addition to the Monday films shown in the Science Building, and in the summer term there is an open air cinema in the courtyard.


Further information about student activities can be obtained from the Verfasste Studierendenschaft (former ASTA) email :


Students who have come from other countries (e.g. Denmark, White Russia) have been favourably impressed by the range of activities Weingarten has to offer, especially in sport (volleyball was a favourite activity) or the opportunity to learn Latin American dancing.


Here are some of the comments from students:

  • "I am able to be more independent here"
  • "I have been made to feel very welcome"
  • "It has been good to have the opportunity to compare this University with my own back in Denmark"
  • "I really like being so near to the mountains!"
