Housing services

SRH Hochschule Berlin is close to the underground station Ernst-Reuter-Platz. Ideally, students should look for accommodation near the campus in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district. This can be a difficult task, but it is not impossible. Students interested in living in popular districts such as Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg must also be patient. Finding suitable accommodation can take some time, but Berlin has an important advantage: rent prices are still relatively low in comparison to other European capitals.

Library services

Our library team supports your information research and fosters your information literacy. There are currently over 5,000 print media resources located in the campus library as required by the academic curriculum. Additionally, we provide an increasing number of electronic resources.

Student Life

Campus life

With approximately 1000 students from over 70 nations, SRH Hochschule Berlin is a place where people of different nationalities and backgrounds meet and exchange ideas and experiences. Our campus is located in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district in West Berlin, directly at Ernst-Reuter-Platz. Nearby are the Berlin Victory Column, the famous shopping street Ku’damm and the largest zoological park in Europe. Several cafés, restaurants, clubs, museums, theatres and art galleries can be found in this part of the city, offering students a wide range of options to organise their leisure time.

Sports facilities

SRH Hochschule Berlin offers several sport and leisure activities to motivate students to lead a healthy and well-balanced life.You have the opportunity to join the SRH team in the annual 5km relay race organised by the Berliner Wasserbetriebe in Tiergarten, participate in the beach volleyball tournament in the summer or show your football skills during the “Cup der Privaten”.For a small fee, you can also take a number of fitness courses (e.g. African dance and Zumba) at TU Berlin during the semester.


Since July 2009 the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) has accredited SRH Hochschule Berlin as an institution of higher education. This year the initial reaccreditation has been extended from 5 to 10 years which confirms the high quality requirements in teaching and research.

We are the only private university of applied sciences in Berlin that carries this quality seal until at least 2025.

The accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities is a quality assurance practice for private universities that ensures whether academic teaching and research conform to the recognised scientific standards.
