A healthy University
Healthy Campus Bonn

Studying, researching, teaching and working together in good Health

Your health is important to us! Working in collaboration with a range of cooperation partners, we provide a range of free-of-charge health-related information and services and organize events focusing on physical, mental and social health. Together, we consider the conditions of work and study at the University of Bonn and take steps to ensure a healthy environment.
Seeking to foster a culture of needs-driven continual improvement, we are dependent on your feedback and input to achieve our goal of a truly “Healthy Campus”.

Tell us what the problem is - University of Bonn staff are asked to submit feedback regarding the issue of healthy working practices, which the University incorporated in the development of targeted measures to ensure good, health-conscious working conditions.

Healthy Campus Bonn Team

Why a University Health Management Initiative?

Valuing Health

The Rectorate commissioned the Healthy Campus Bonn team to develop and implement a University health management strategy.

Strategy Goals

The strategy seeks to promote and strengthen the health skills of individual members of staff and establish healthy working and study structures.

Scientific Supervision

Scientific evaluation of our health-oriented strategy ensures continual quality assurance and its needs-driven adaptation and development.


A range of studies make a contribution to the academic literature in this area. The University health management strategy networks a number of partners and involves them in the development of the concept and process.
