Bremen is a very safe place to live. There are no districts in the city that students should avoid to visit. With a population of almost 550,000 inhabitants it is possible you witness conflicts and become the victim of crime. Therefore we would like to give you some information.
HSB is not a campus university. As it is located directly in the city of Bremen and part of the local neighborhood, it is open to the public. Therefore, HSB cannot be compared to a campus university. It is different, but equally safe.
In case of an emergency call one of the following numbers:
You can go to hospital if you require urgent medical assistance in the middle of the night or at the weekend. If you are unable to get there yourself, because you are very sick or seriously injured and cannot use public transportation or a taxi, you can dial the freephone emergency number 112.
If it is not an emergency, but you cannot wait until the doctor’s office opens, you can take advantage of the Medical Emergency Service (Ärztlicher Bereitschaftsdienst) by calling 116 117. This is a general practitioner who can be called after normal doctors’ hours to discuss the next steps with you regarding your health situation.
