Two towns – two campuses

We are the SRH in North Rhine-Westphalia. For more than 15 years in Hamm, we have gained a lot of experience in the higher education market.

Renowned and experienced The locations

SRH University of Applied Sciences has been operating two campuses in North Rhine-Westphalia since 2019. The SRH Campus Rheinland in Leverkusen was added to the campus at the main location in Hamm (Westphalia). This allows us to offer geographical choice in many degree programmes and thus more flexibility in the direction of study-life balance.

Hamm is a large city with approximately 180,000 inhabitants. In 2014, the city was voted "Logistics Location of the Year 2014 in NRW". Situated on Germany's main A1 and A2 motorways are numerous large logistics centres. This is flanked by numerous industrial estates in Hamm but also in the surrounding towns such as Bönen, which is home to the KIK European headquarters, among others.

Hamm is a young, expanding university location. The rent level is relatively low compared to other cities. Centrally located flats - also suitable for shared flats - can be rented at favourable conditions. The entire cityscape is undergoing change. Both the city of Hamm and private companies are gradually expanding their range of new accommodation options for students.
