Campus Life & Facilities
Berlin campus is located near the Charlottenburg Palace - a historical landmark in Berlin
Campus life and facilities
ESCP Berlin's campus building is comprised of modern lecture halls, a library and seminar rooms. For students who want to take a break from their studies, they can have a bite in the campus' lounge and recreational space, rest on green campus grounds or even take a stroll around the Charlottenburg palace's vast gardens located right behind the campus.
Apart from daily classes, the School's flourishing student life fulfils students in their experience out of class. At Berlin's bustling campus, students can find themselves engaging in projects with the School's varied student societies, joining the "Tribunes" for a conference/round-table debate on "shaping the Europe of the future" or presenting their business plans at a competition hosted by the Blue Factory (ESCP's own business incubator). But "all work and no play" is not the name of the game at the Berlin campus! At day time, students can visit the student house on campus for a cosy get-together with fellow students over a cup of coffee. But as night falls the building next door, "Dr. Faust" (a student association founded in 2017), regularly comes alive as a pulsating nightclub.
For any concerns or inquiries regarding our student societies, you can contact the Berlin campus Coordinator of Student Life Alina Iakovleva at firstname.lastname@example.org.
