The main facilities and services
The Language Centre offers students the possibility to learn one or more foreign languages in conventional language courses or as part of a special subject-specific language programme tailored to their respective degree courses. Courses are offered in European languages, as well as more exotic languages such as (Mandarin) Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesian.
The University Library holds an extensive range of scientific literature, journals and magazines. And if you need something that isn't available on-site, you can always borrow it by inter-library loan.
Centre for Key Skills
The Centre for Key Skills provides a large range of key skills courses free of charge to students of all faculties.
At the University of Passau you don't have to be a sports student to get fit! Staff and students alike are free to use the sports facilities and participate in the vast range of different sports courses offered.
The student services organisation
The student services organisation, 'Studentenwerk' in German, is responsible for the day-to-day running of the main refectory and cafeterias, halls of residence, as well as student welfare, supporting cultural events and arranging student loans and grants.
