In 1847 the institution was designated as holding the rank of an "Academy of Agriculture and Forestry". In 1904 the name was changed to "Agricultural College". Hohenheim College was awarded the right to confer doctorates in 1918 and habilitations in 1919. This school was renamed Universität Hohenheim in 1967.


Over the next few years the most interesting research findings are going to come not from the core scientific disciplines, but from the peripheral areas affected by these disciplines. The University of Hohenheim has six central scientific institutions which coordinate inter-disciplinary research, support this with specific scientific equipment and act as catalysts for inter-faculty research.

  • Research Center for Global Food Security and Ecosystems
  • Research Centre for Health Sciences
  • Food Security Center (DAAD exceed Zentrum)

Housing services

Among international students, there is a high demand for rooms in our residence halls. There is only a limited number of rooms (so-called “quota rooms”) reserved for international students, and that is why only a small number of Hohenheim students can get a room. We have put together an overview of the residence halls in Hohenheim.It is much more difficult for international students to look for accommodation while they are still in their home country. Almost all new international students can get a room in the residence hall. The room can be rented for a maximum of one year, and afterwards our accommodation mentoring will help you with finding accommodation on the private market.
