Student Village Vauban

When you find a district in the "Green City Freiburg", which is even more green than the others, you probably arrived in the district Vauban. The Student village, named after the famous French builder of the 17th century, Sébastien de Vauban, consists of six renovated former barrack buildings and some new buildings, surrounded by lush greenery and ancient trees. Students live here in flat-sharing communities for 2 to 9 people and in single apartments. Many tutorships and the “VauBar” are part of the community life.

The traffic calmed district is connected to the city centre by tram, which takes about 7 minutes. If you take your bike it's a ride about 10 to 15 minutes. By car please take Marie-Curie-Straße.
