Ideal infrastructure for research and study

LMU is an integral part of the exceptionally broadly based network of research institutions, universities, foundations and corporations in Munich.

The downtown campus in the heart of Munich

LMU Munich's historic main building in the heart of the city is world-famous. It is primarily home to the social sciences and humanities. The main university library is situated in the south wing of the main building. It houses nearly half of LMU Munich's total stock of 6.6 million volumes available in the university's central and more than 150 departmental libraries. This provides an ideal infrastructure for research and study.

The HighTechCampus

The majority of the natural and life sciences are concentrated at the HighTechCampus in Großhadern-Martinsried, a one-of-a-kind research campus in Europe. It enables innovative and interconnected research on the highest level, often in direct collaboration with the adjacent Max Planck Institutes for Biochemistry and Neurobiology and the Helmholtz Center Munich - National Research Center for Environment and Health. The Innovation Center for Biotechnology (IZB) and Bio-M AG Cluster Development provide the necessary platforms for an efficient technology transfer of results into practical application. In addition, LMU Munich cooperates with numerous other regional and globally renowned research institutes of the Max Planck, Helmholtz and Leibniz Society.
