Portrait of the university
With its 15,000 students (including more than 10 percent international students) and roughly 1,000 employees, Trier University embraces contrast: young, yet true to tradition; internationally oriented and regionally rooted; on the geographic edge of Germany, but in the heart of Europe.
Since its beginnings in 1970, Trier University has been developing into a major academic centre in a region characterized by its proximity to Belgium, France and Luxembourg.
There are six faculties which together cover more than thirty subject areas. Faculty and departmental buildings are grouped around the Forum and the Central Library, to which they are connected by bridges.
The university is located on a hill with park areas and a gorgeous view onto the city. With its modern architecture surrounded by luscious green nature, it is said to be one of Germany's most beautiful campuses.
