Heidelberg's welcoming atmosphere fosters an attitude of inclusion that allows everyone to be themselves. You'll find friends who change your perspective and make you laugh, who challenge and support you, and who will remain influential in your life long after you leave the Berg.
Everything you do in college comes together to form your education experience. A lot of students discover new passions and career paths through their involvement in student clubs and organizations. Heidelberg's small campus size provides you with greater opportunities for leadership within organizations as well as the ability to influence and impact campus events.
Throughout the year, you'll be able to join in fun campus-wide events such as Harry Potter Fest, Siggy Summer Send-Off, and Fresh Check Day. You'll also benefit from either participating in or attending a variety of music and theatre events each semester. Add in our lectures series speakers and the HYPE Career Ready Program and it's almost impossible not to be busy at Heidelberg!
More than Dorms
Heidelberg has a friendly and dynamic campus atmosphere that offers various living styles, including traditional residence halls, suites, pods, and apartments. No matter where you live, you'll have access to state-of-the-art technology, lounge spaces and rec rooms, and sustainable living options. Through hall programs and events, you'll meet your neighbors and develop friendships that you'll carry through your entire college experience.
My favorite part of living in the dorms is the sense of community. Heidelberg is a small campus, so everything is within reach and being close to everyone makes it easy to get to know people.

Heidelberg students are active students. Whether it's competing on one of our 20 Division III athletic teams, our various intramural teams, or just running on a treadmill, there's no shortage of ways you can stay active and fit in college.
The Saurwein Health & Wellness Center has a two-level fitness room with free weights, exercise machines, and cardio equipment, a multi-purpose room for fitness classes, and a ping-pong lounge. A city walking/running trail runs right through campus and connects with Heidelberg athletic facilities and the nearby Hedges-Boyer Park.
Over 60% of students are involved in either varsity athletics or intramurals, and our intramural program has been nationally recognized.
Services and Support
Heidelberg is a place where everybody supports your ambitions and cheers for your success. The needs and interests of our students are our top priorities. The Division of Student Life provides a variety of services and support options for students through multicultural affairs programming, community services initiatives and counseling services,
At Heidelberg, I never felt invisible or that no one cared about my success. I truly feel that everyone was as invested in watching me succeed as I was, and that was incredibly reassuring.
