The attractiveness of the university is enhanced


by the appeal of the city itself, with its ever-present traces of more than 2,000 years of history. Since July 2006, Regensburg carries the UNESCO distinction "World Heritage", which recognizes the unique character of the medieval city centre and its magnificent architecture - above all the Old Stone Bridge above the Danube and St. Peter's Cathedral.

About 20,300 students are currently enrolled at UR (as for winter semester 2011/2012) including an international student community of approx. 1,340 students).
