Studing in Hamm

Hamm is a young, expanding university location. The rents are relatively low compared to other cities. Centrally situated apartments that are also suitable for sharing are available for rent at favorable conditions. The entire cityscape is in a process of transformation. The local authority as well as Hamm's private companies are successively expanding their range of accommodation options for students.

Our canteen of a different kind: "Heinrich"

Our university is engaged in an attractive cooperation with the restaurant & coffee bar "Heinrich", newly opened in the Heinrich-von-Kleist-Forum, i.e. directly next door, in the beginning of May 2017. The upshot for our students and staff: 15 % discount on meals and beverages across the whole menu. This helps us offer our students a price level that can compete with that of a canteen.
"The cooperation is a great thing, especially for the students. And if the SRH students and staff are satisfied, so am I" - Restaurant chef and proprietor Mehdi Shabani.
