Living among friends
A place for scholars and their families, where they can live for a while and feel comfortable - this has been our purpose 15 years ago. In September 1997, the guesthouse for international scholars Im Neuenheimer Feld 370 was officially opened. It connects 3 buildings and is supported by the "Unterländer Studienfonds", a public endowment of the university. Since 2007 the guesthouse INF 370 is also home of the university-owned Kids Club, a childcare for our young guests - with multilingual caregivers and flexible hours.
Since the capacities of the guesthouse INF 370 couldn't meet the demand scholars for living space,the university decided on an extension. In June 2005 the guesthouse Im Neuenheimer Feld 371 completed the four-building complex in the centre of the campus, just a few steps away from the university cafeteria, the botanical garden and the river Neckar. With INF 370 providing 71 apartments, among them 2 apartments adapted to the needs of the disabled,the new building extended the number of apartments to a total of 114 guesthouse apartments.

Living on Campus
The guesthouses are located on the university campus next to the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), the Centre of Molecular Biology (ZMBH), several university clinics and the Max-Planck-Institutes for Medical Research and International Law, making it an ideal base for visiting scientists working in the fields of medicine and the natural sciences. Scholars working at institutes in the city centre have quick access to the old town or e.g. campus Bergheim by bus, tram oder bike. Not surprisingly, you find scientists of the most diverse professions living under one roof in the guesthouses of Heidelberg University [Mehr...].
