About the IBZ Mannheim
The University of Mannheim owns two Guesthouses with apartments for international scholars of the university. They are located across from the Mannheim Baroque Palace, the main building of the university.

The Guesthouse in Mannheim’s square M2 was given to the University of Mannheim as a gift in 1994.

The Welcome Center is a EURAXESS Service Centre for international scholars and supports them and their families in all non-academic
