Goethe University has campuses in Bockenheim, Westend, Riedberg, and Niederrad. While very different and distinct in character, all campuses are conveniently located and well serviced by public transportation.
The new Westend Campus with its park-like ambiance and beautiful travertine-faced buildings is one of Germany’s most attractive. It is currently home to the House of Finance and the departments of law and economics as well as history, philosophy, religious studies, and parts of languages and cultural studies; the university administration as well as the social science, education, psychology, and human geography will also move to the campus from their current location in Bockenheim. In addition to state-of-the-art lecture rooms, the campus has a beer garden, and several light-filled restaurants and cafes.
The original main campus in Bockenheim is still home to the administration, the university library, and various academic departments (see above). It is scheduled to be closed within a couple years.
Riedberg Campus is a home for the natural sciences at Goethe University—geo-sciences/geography, physics, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacy, and biology. Modern buildings offer state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories. The new Otto Stern Center forms the heart and center of the campus, providing not only a library and lecture hall center, but a place for students and faculty to gather.
Set directly on banks of the River Main, Niederrad Campus is the seat of the Medical Faculty and the University Hospital. It is also undergoing reconstruction and expansion, and offers a mix of modern, new buildings and charming old ones.
Visitors can follow these directions to find the campuses by car or public transportation.
