Various events such as movie or board game nights, beer pong parties, concerts and barbeques are organised by the Student Council for everyone to take a break from studying and socialize. Our regular biweeking 'Stammtisch' (get-together) helps bring students together as well as involve them in university life. Any fun idea can become a reality and we keep everyone up-to-date through our website, Instagram, Whatsapp groups chats and our Faculty e-learning platform.
Besides our official events, students get together as part of other organisations or private groups for chill evenings in or a night out in Kulmbach or Bayreuth.
Student Initiatives and University Groups
The Bayreuth-Kulmbach Alt Project is a student-lead initiative founded on Campus Kulmbach.
Our goal is to create international awareness of alternative proteins by promoting research, organising events and being part of a global community of world-class universities. We focus our activities on cultivated meat, plant-based alternatives, fermentation techniques and the future food industry!
We can’t wait for you to join us – in the meantime don’t forget to follow us on Instagram to keep updated on our activities.
University Sports Programme
Fitness and well-being are essential to a healthy and active lifestyle, but physical and mental health are by far not the only benefits. Besides being a welcome distraction from studying and sitting at a desk staring at a screen all day (which most of us do way too much!), our fitness and well-being classes are an excellent opportunity to get to know your Campus Kulmbach community and have fun, meaningful interactions!
The University of Bayreuth 'Hochschulsport' (University Sports) offers a variety of courses and activities at Campus Kulmbach and Bayreuth, where anyone will find their perfect fit. Whether you would prefer to relax during restorative Yoga, shake it to the rhythm during Dance, or want to set up your teammates for a matchpoint in a friendly volleyball match, there's an activity for you!

Socialising in Kulmbach
Kulmbach offers a variety of meeting places to catch up with friends over food and drink.
If you are looking to grab a quick bite and chat between lectures, then our on-campus Mensa is opened from 11:00 – 16:00 offering hot food, snacks and drinks. Or you might want to stretch your legs and eat locally. The area offers a variety of hot food spots serving snacks such as noodles, falafel, sub sandwiches as well as the traditional Kulmbacher Bratwurst.
Alternatively, follow the German tradition of afternoon ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ and catch up with friends in the selection of bakeries and cafes dotted around city. And when the sun is out, a visit to the local ice cream-parlours is a must! In the evening, you can try some of the local restaurants and bars all of which are within easy walking distance.
