An attractive program of the house organized by the so-called Kollegiat*innen provides inter-disciplinary exchange.
During the semester on Monday evenings the Dies Academicus takes place. Experts from society, church and university present and discuss their research and opinions. The Kollegiat*innen choose the topics of these Dies Academici.There are also optional self-organized groups according to the interests of the Kollegiat*innen.
At the beginning of each semester there is a study trip for a few days. Destinations are either Bavarian cities or cities in European neighboring countries – in the last semesters we travelled to Prague, Amsterdam or Sibiu. There are no additional costs for the study trip.
The spiritual life is an expression of our common faith and an integral part of living together. The semester starts and ends with a worship service. During the semester, there are evening prayers said Sunday through Thursday in the chapel. They are prepared by the students.
There is one wissenschaftliche Tutor*in for all Kollegiat*innen. S*he supports preparing for exams – especially for the exam in ELKB. During the semester an “Examenslerngruppe” is held. S*he proofreads papers and offers a learning group to improve the ability to speak German during the semester.
