The KHG (Catholic University Community) would like to give you space to meet other students. We offer different formats - for relaxation, inspiration, discussion or creativity. You can enjoy culture with us, exchange ideas on various political or personal topics, take to the stage, celebrate or receive spiritual impulses.
We want to live openness, diversity and togetherness - based on the Christian understanding that God* can be found in every human being, regardless of cultural, religious or sexual identity. This should shape our togetherness and the atmosphere.

We are happy about everyone who comes to us. In addition to our events programme, we have several explicit offers for international students. On this Page you will find all the information you need.


ecumenical events and excursions for all and especially for international students.

Katholische Studierendenhilfe (Catholic Student Aid)

The Catholic Student Aid is intended to provide short-term support to foreign students who find themselves in a unique financial emergency.



We invite you for an English language prayer and communion service. Following the liturgy of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) our prayer services are open to all believers. Sharing in an international community, we are aware that you might not be of Christian religion. Nevertheless, you are welcome to pray to your God during our Christian services. Just feel at home as far as possible.
