Life in Wuppertal

Most of us know from experience how it feels to come to a new city in a foreign country, where you don’t know anyone and maybe don’t even speak the language.
Therefore, we want to give you some guidance and a first impression of the student life in Wuppertal, its surrounding areas and studying at our University.

We put together some information about the most important places to see in Wuppertal, our personal favourite spots and some impressions and experiences from former international students that studied at the BUW.

We hope you will like studying in Wuppertal as much as they did!

If you have any questions about Wuppertal or the University of Wuppertal, please don't hesitate to contact us!
