We put together a digital tour of our campus to give you a sneak peek ahead of the Open Day:

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.

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.
Classes, seminars and study sessions take place on all three floors. Students enjoy small class sizes and an open-door policy for professors.
Hertie School students have many amenities such as lockers and mailboxes at their disposal to make their study experience a breeze.
Thanks for visiting the Hertie School! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
See you later! Berlin is a bike-friendly city and we offer indoor bicycle parking for students.

Let's head inside

Get a feel for the building and amenities enjoyed by our students.

Pull up a chair and enjoy a cappuccino or a home-cooked meal in our cafeteria on the main floor!
Our forum offers a very large space to host the many Hertie School public events which take place throughout the year. We hope you will join us!
Throughout campus, and here in our student lounge, you will find our famous red couches for studying, lounging and catching up with friends.
The Hertie School is certified as a family-friendly university and supports its members in maintaining a balance between career, or studies, and family life.
The kicker room has not only a table football but relaxing couches and even toys in case a student or a staff member would like to bring a child.
Our roof terrace on the third floor offers students the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Berlin summer without leaving campus.
