Student life

Life and leisure in Erlangen and Nuremberg

FAU is located in one of the most attractive regions in Germany. The area surrounding the University itself offers a huge range of leisure activities for those interested in music, sport, arts and culture. In addition, at FAU you have the opportunity to volunteer, whether it’s in university policymaking, as a mentor, or in one of the many student initiatives. If you’re flexible and start looking early, you will find a good range of affordable accommodation in Nuremberg, Fürth, Erlangen and the surrounding area. With the semester ticket, you can travel to events quickly and easily using the region’s excellent public transport system.

In the FAU student vlog, our students show you around the university, the region and everything you need to know about student life at FAU. All German videos have English subtitles and Anni’s videos are always in English.
