The main campus of Kiel University is located in the district of Ravensberg (West bank), the Technical Faculty is located in the district of Gaarden (East bank).

Close to the main campus are the districts of Ravensberg, Brunswik, Damperhof, Wik and the locations Blücherplatz, Exerzierplatz and Schrevenpark. Apartment buildings are dominating these districts, some of them are very nice older buildings. The districts close to the main campus are very popular among young families and students. The University can be reached by bike easily.

Very close to the University hospital (UKSH) and to Kiel fjord is the district of Düsternbrook. This district is a more exclusive residential area, and prices for housing are more expensive. Kronshagen is also close to the main campus, but not a district of Kiel anymore.
