It's hard to imagine life in Münster without the University of Münster. A fifth of the 300,000 "Münsteraner" are students at one of eight universities, of which the University of Münster is the largest. The cultural attractions, sport and leisure options, incentives for families— in short, everything that enriches life alongside studying and research is on hand in the city and at the University. Münster is one large campus.
