International programmes at the faculty

The HAW Hamburg is a city university and not a typical “campus university” that we are so familiar with when we think of American universities. Our university is divided up over four locations throughout the city. We hope however, that wherever you study, you will feel at home.

Campus Berliner Tor

Campus Berliner Tor is situated in the middle of town, near the main station and the city shopping centre. On foot you are at the »Alster« [Hamburg's lake] in a matter of minutes, with the underground links you can quickly get around town. Sports lovers can join the courses and individual training offered within the university sports programme. In five minutes you are at the Alster-Swimming pool with its 50m pool.

On campus is a cafeteria and a café as well as a hall of residence (with another one a seven minute walk away). It is our main campus and home to the Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science and the Faculty of Business & Social Sciences. The faculties have their own libraries, labs and computer rooms on this site.

Also on this campus is the university administration as well as the Student Centre with the International Office, the Admissions & Registrar's Office and the Central Student Counselling Office.

24 hours hamburg - urban life timelapse


24 hours in nine minutes – 48 locations in one city. Hamburg. This time-lapse film shows one day in Hamburg and takes you to beautiful, interesting and distinctive places. We took over 12.000 single photos from October 2012 till January 2013. We used a DSLR Nikon D5100 with a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105 objectiv. The single shots were taken in an interval of seven seconds. This made it possible to use exposure times up to 4 seconds. As a result of this we are able to show a sky full of stars above Hamburg. The timelapse effect was created by stringing together the single photos to video sequences. Human eyes recognize fluent movements by seeing 20 frames per second.
