The Library at the ♥ of the university provides 1,700 learning spaces where you can study in peace and quiet whenever you like. Of course you can borrow books, but also e-books, films, records or video games. Need a break? Simply head over to the BibCafé for a drink or yummy snack.


Student representation

StuVe is the university’s student representation. These students work to promote the interests and desires of all students at the University of Konstanz. They also organize large parties and can give you useful advice and assistance.
