Franz-Lambert-HausGeschwister-Scholl-Straße 3 · 35039 Marburg


The "Franz-Lambert-Haus" is part of the Student Village. It was built in 1965 and converted in 1998 and 1999.

An Olympic Village is a temporary home for participants in the Olympic Games. The Student Village is situated at the foot of the mountain Kornberg, between the quarters Ortenberg and Waldtal. It offers students more than just accommodation: there are seven student residences in which students can study, live, have fun and communicate in many languages. Both new and more advanced students feel comfortable there. Students from all over Germany meet fellow students from different continents.

In May 2014, a new meeting centre, the Max Kade Centre, was opened in the Student Village. This new building provides a new space for an exchange between young people from different nations. Moreover, a four-storey residential building with 49 accommodations was built next to the actual meeting centre in which students can meet, have parties and make music. The Max Kade Foundation, which promotes international communication particularly between young people, supports the realisation of this project.

Between 1998 and 2004 three houses in the Student Village were modernised and renovated. Two-room modern apartments replaced three single rooms, each with their own little kitchen, and bathroom. At the same time, the opportunity to install Internet, sat, and telephone lines was used. The single rooms in Franz-Lambert-House have these facilities as well.

Some apartments are furnished, others merely have a little kitchen, a refrigerator, wash basin, hotplates, kitchen cupboards and bedroom cupboards. Some students may leave a chair, a bed or some other pieces of furniture when they move out, which makes the composition in each apartment quite different. You are allowed to bring along your own furniture, provided you rent an unfurnished apartment.
