Student lifestyle

There is more to life at TUM than lectures and exams. Our students find a variety of ways to immerse themselves in campus life. They organize festivals. They get involved in student bodies. They join music clubs or set up creative research projects. TUM actively encourages these character-building activities.

Sporting program

The largest sporting program at a German university - at the sites of the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Music and art

Music and art at a technical university really do exist! They are part of our everyday life at TUM.

Festivals: TUNIX, GARNIX und Co.

Each summer semester, over 150 volunteers spring into action for two major festivals: TUNIX at Munich’s Königsplatz and GARNIX at the Garching campus. The atmosphere is buzzing, young bands get a chance to perform, ice-cold beer is on top and the barbecues are sizzling. StuStaCulumis another legendary summer event. It takes place at the Studentenstadt – Germany’s largest halls of residence.

Legendary uni film club

Most weeks during term, the film club TU Filmscreens a new movie – showing everything from blockbusters through low-budget masterpieces to all-time classics. The historic Carl-von-Linde lecture theater is the venue. True to tradition, the club shows Die Feuerzangenbowle (The Punch Bowl) every year just before Christmas. This school-set German film from the 1940s has become a cult favorite with students.
