Germany's most northern university, with 5,000 students, offers a very personal atmosphere. At Europa-Universität Flensburg, we place particular emphasis on providing support and we value personal exchange with students and staff alike. At our university, people know each other. Students are not just numbers lost in the crowd but have names and faces that you will meet again and again. The university also sets itself a great store by its international orientation. Currently, the International Centre cooperates with 80 partner universities in 32 countries around the globe. The campus, with its various paths, provides runners with many running trails. Runners can choose whether they would like to run up the slight hills or shorter routes around the lakes. Whether you want to play badminton, football, or baseball, the wide green areas of the campus offer ideal conditions for sports activities to clear your head between or after lectures. Right across campus is the local swimming pool and sauna. On campus, you can also find a sports center with a fitness studio, which has a reduced price for students. Here you can practice several group or individual sports and, as well, enjoy the comfort of a relaxation area at the end of your intense activity. 

Within the framework of Student Self-Administration, students (directly or indirectly) choose their own representatives. In particular, the Student Parliament (StuPa) is the central collegial organ of all students and the parliament that represents students from all departments. It decides on students' affairs, such as the budget, the semester ticket, and rules or regulations. StuPA elects the students' executive committee: AStA. The General Student Committee (AStA) is the collegial management body and is authorized by StuPa, the executive body representing the interests of all students. It consists of different departments and the management board (e.g., higher education policy, social affairs, culture, or sports).
