What is student life like?

Student life on the campus offers a wide range of recreational facilities. You may go in for different kinds of sports in the sports clubs of our university and watch films organized by our university's film club. Whether you attend cultural events or go to student parties, there is always something going on on the university campus. Due to its favorable location directly on the Strelasund and the sailing harbor, there are very good facilities for watersport activities. 

As a campus university, HOST offers one of the most charming accommodation options: in a small village with a Scandinavian look and feel, located on campus – just a few steps from the Mensa (caféteria) and the schools. Apart from the university’s sports club, there are also other sports clubs in Stralsund that offer a wide variety of sports. Membership in a sports club is not very expensive. Members have to pay an annual membership fee and can then take part in all sports activities. The sports clubs in Stralsund offer a huge array of sports, ranging from basketball, handball, football, and volleyball to martial arts, gymnastics, and athletics.

Scholarships & Funding

Since the school's tuition is zero, no tuition assistance is available through the school. 

Housing options.

Whether in student halls of residence, a shared flat, or your first own flat, this decision has to be made by you and should be made according to your own desires and available funds. Stralsund offers exceptionally good conditions and is not affected by overly expensive rental prices or a highly competitive property market like in other study locations and cities.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
