With the foundation of "Pädagogische Hochschule Siegerland" (Educational University Siegerland) in 1964, Siegen’s academic heritage saw a revival. In 1972, the merger of the technical college and educational university paved the way for the establishment of University of Siegen (in the form of a comprehensive university).
The University of Siegen is a young, modern institute of higher education located centrally in the area bordering the three German federal states of Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatine.
University of Siegen has a broad portfolio of research activities in its four faculties, including both basic and applied research. University of Siegen has a special research profile whereby we promote transdisciplinary research within our university as well as cooperation with major research centres and other universities both in Germany and abroad.

I have just started to sudy there, but I like the university very much. I see, that our university tries to do the the best to provide good conditions to students. Good professors and cearing stuff, student life, great nature of Siegen and so on. I am happy with choice. It is only hard to find a job here, but I hope to solve this problem now.
The city is small so there are not so many options to explore. Campus is kind of distant from the city center and as an international transport option is bus only. There are no late night busses so nightlife is not much of a thing.
