Description and characteristics:
Foreign students attending the international study center or the state college and are being prepared for their studies in Germany live exclusively in the Max Kade house.
The close connection between living and learning (the state college is in the same building) is regarded very positively by the occupants. The seminar rooms and the library offer the opportunity to retire or to learn in groups.
Despite this the occupants are not isolated as there is a student community around the Max Kade house with about 1200 German and international students many of whom come from the United States.

The international Max Kade house, together with the high-rise student building "Im Neuenheimer Feld 133" form the international Max Kade accommodation and meeting center.
