The University of Mannheim exchange program is for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in or with an interest in Information Technology. The University of Mannheim is a public research university located in the city center of Mannheim , a city of 315,000 located in  southwestern Germany.

In addition to its highly-regarded academic reputation, the University of Mannheim is also considered one of the most beautiful universities in Germany. The centerpiece of the University of Mannheim campus is Mannheim Palace—constructed in 1760, it is the largest baroque palace in Germany. About 11,000 University of Mannheim students  enjoy the privileges of this unique setting and atmosphere.

Academics

UW-W has an exchange agreement with the University of Mannheim’s School of Business Informatics and Business Mathematics. Therefore, exchange students must select at least half of their coursework from this school.  Students may also take a limited number of courses in other areas, such as German language and business.  Students may choose to take courses in English or German, depending on their language proficiency.
 

Accommodation

The International Office at Mannheim provides student accommodation through the local student housing agency, Studentenwerk Mannheim. Student residence halls are the ideal place to get to know not only German students but also fellow students from all over the world!

Depending on the residence hall, students will live with between two and fifteen people in a shared apartment. Both single and double occupancy rooms are available. All rooms are fully furnished. Students staying on campus will have access to a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.

Student Life and Surroundings

Mannheim is  a city in southwestern Germany. With approximately 315,000 inhabitants, it is the second-largest city in Baden-Württemberg. The University and region of Mannheim offer a wide range of events and possibilities for spending leisure time. The city is packed with lively bars, venues and cinemas. For those who love nature, the banks of the Rhine and Neckar are in close reach of the university and make an ideal spot for relaxing or having a barbecue with friends.

Mannheim is full of potential and offers a vibrant cultural life, as well as great sports facilities. Compared to well-known metropolitan cities as for example Munich, Hamburg and Berlin, the city of Mannheim offers similar opportunities at lower costs: a great advantage for students living in Mannheim.
