What is Included: Housing
The University of Mannheim has a number of residence halls called “Stedentenwerk Mannheim” in walking distance to the university buildings. They house German and other international students. Each room, a single or a double, has basic furniture, a sink, and a TV, internet and phone connection. Shared kitchens are available. Rooms for exchange students are limited in number so UMaine students must apply as soon as they are accepted. The rooms usually have to be rented for a six-month-period, reductions are sometimes possible upon request. The International Office at the University of Mannheim also provides support in locating rooms in private homes.
Program Description

The University of Mannheim, established in 1967, specializes in business administration and economics, with strong programs in the social sciences and humanities. As a school of business, Mannheim is fully accredited (AASCB) and has consistently received the highest ranking not only in Germany but also throughout Europe. Located directly in the city, the university offers an urban environment with all its amenities.

The University of Mannheim is mainly located in Mannheim Palace, the largest baroque palace in Germany. The palace, where most of the university classrooms are located, is situated southwest of the city center. From the palace, the “Breite Straße” leads directly into the city center where it intersects with the main pedestrian street, the Planken creating a large, beautiful pedestrian district filled with many shops, cafés, restaurants, and cinemas.

Mannheim is located at the point where the Rhine and Neckar rivers meet. The town is surrounded by the beautiful regions of Odenwald and the Palatinate region, both of which are very popular for going on nature walks and cycling. Mannheim’s surrounding area is known nationwide for its asparagus cultivation and the nearby Palatinate region is well known for its vineyards and traditional wine festivals, most of which take place in autumn. Thanks to Mannheim’s central location and direct connection to Germany’s extensive public transportation system, a variety of charming German towns are easily within reach. Even France and Switzerland are only a relatively short journey away!

Exchange students need to take the majority of courses from the school to which they are coming on exchange. However, they can choose 1-2 courses from the university-wide elective courses if places are available: Law, Business Administration, Economics, Social Sciences, Humanities, Business Informatics and Mathematics. Students can choose their courses upon arrival (except German language and terminology courses offered by the International Office).
