Student Life

Campus life

The Neuherberg campus has a lot to offer besides science: The central meeting place for all students is the Graduate Students’ Cafe, and there are numerous sports facilities for activities such as soccer, beach volleyball or tennis. DINI, the graduate students’ initiative, regularly organizes activities especially for graduate students, and members of the Welfare Association at Helmholtz Zentrum München can rent various holiday apartments at favorable prices.
