Student life

Hertie School students’ rich and diverse backgrounds find expression in a host of initiatives, making campus life much more than just a classroom experience.

Students enjoy small class sizes and an open-door policy for professors.
Classes, seminars and study sessions take place on all three floors.
We have a committed library team and a host of subscriptions to publications, journals and books related to fields taught at the Hertie School.
Next to our library is one of our study spaces available for students, which includes computers and plenty of plugs for personal devices.
Though Hertie School students are generally respectful of others, earplugs come in handy when exams are approaching.
Hertie School students have many amenities such as lockers and mailboxes at their disposal to make their study experience a breeze.
Our campus also hosts a variety of student events throughout the semester such as cabaret, de-stress fest and the annual pub quiz.
Berlin is a bike-friendly city and we offer indoor bicycle parking for students.
Thanks for visiting the Hertie School! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
