The Uni­ver­sity

The University of Paderborn is a modern, public, and cosmopolitan Campus University with five faculties, around 20,000 students. About 10% of our students are international students or exchange students from one of our more than 200 international partner universities (in 2020).

The University's mission statement is encapsulated by the phrase 'the University of the Information Society'. This concept embraces internationalisation and artistic creativity in the context of the globalised knowledge economy[ and in acknowledgment of the vital role played by the arts as a counterpoint to the rigours of intellectual life.
