The Philipps University of Marburg (also known as Alma Mater Philippina ) comprises 16 departments , the facilities of which are spread across the city of Marburg . With 26,355 students (2017), it is one of the medium-sized German comprehensive universities . It was founded in 1527 by Landgrave Philipp the Magnanimous as a Protestant university , making it the oldest university still in existence that can be traced back to a Protestant foundation.
On July 1, 1527 consecrated Landgrave Chancellor Johann Feige ceremony for the university founded by Landgrave Philipp. At that time there were eleven professors and 88 students. The first rector was the professor of law and assessor at the landgrave's court court Johannes Eisermann , called Ferrarius Montanus, from Amöneburg . He had already opened the university on May 20, 1527. In the same year he gave the university the necessary academic freedom. On October 4, 1541, the university became economically independent with the endowment certificate. In the following year, the Landgrave was granted university privilege by Emperor Charles V , which was issued at the Reichstag in Regensburg and can be seen against the background of the Regensburg Treaty between the Emperor and the Landgrave. Only with this last step was the foundation fully completed.
Initially, the university primarily used the existing monastery facilities of the Dominicans , Franciscans and spherical lords, which were secularized in 1527/1528 . Two years after the university was founded, Philipp founded the Hessian Scholarship Institution to promote talented regional children , which still exists today as the university's dormitory and is now housed in the stables, the forge and the armory of Marburg Castle . In 1529 the university was the scene of the Marburg Religious Discussion between Martin Luther , Ulrich Zwingli and Philipp Melanchthon . In 1542 it was temporarily relocated to the university building of the city of Grünberg during a plague epidemic .
16th and 17th centuries
Until his death in 1560, Johann Dryander held the medical chair at Marburg University. Appointed successors included Petrus Lotichius Secundus , Johannes Villebrochius, the Nuremberg doctor Georg Palma, Eustachius Quercetanus from Flanders and Theodor Zwinger . A long-term replacement (after a brief appointment with Justus Velsius from Frankfurt am Main and then Guglielmo Gratorolo from Basel) was only possible five years later when Georg Marius was employed by Landgrave Wilhelm IV (Hessen-Kassel) without the consent of the university as a professor on November 15, 1565. Marburg received a second medical professorship in 1566 with Victorinus Schönfeldt , who was already active as a mathematics professor at the university.
Other well-known university lecturers were the theologian Johann Lonitzer , the legal scholar Johann Oldendorp and the philologists Petrus Nigidius the Elder (1501–1583) and Petrus Nigidius the Younger (1536–1602).
After a plague epidemic reached Marburg in July 1574, most of the students fled the city and teaching was relocated to Frankenberg until the danger was over .
In the period from 1580 to 1628 Rudolf Goclenius the Elder was. Ä. Professor of Philosophy , Logic and Ethics at Philipps University. Like numerous other professors of his time, he tried to combine Melanchthon's philosophy with that of Petrus Ramus . In 1609 Johannes Hartmann was appointed professor for chymiatrics and thus received the world's first pharmaceutically-medically oriented chemistry chair.
When Landgrave Moritz converted to Calvinism , the university was forced to accept the Reformed Confession (and retained it until the end of the denominational orientation in 1866), which drove many Lutheran professors to the newly founded University of Giessen in 1607 . When Marburg fell temporarily to the Lutheran Hesse-Darmstadt in 1624 , the university was merged with the Giessen University from 1625 to 1649 and then closed. On June 24, 1653 the university was by Wilhelm VI. (Hessen-Kassel) reopened, which relocated the state's university location from Kassel to Marburg and thus closed the University of Kassel . The university then experienced difficult years because of denominationalization and financial shortages.
18th and 19th centuries
In 1785, the university was a state estate , since it had a seat and vote in state parliaments under the prelates, a special part of the country since it had its own jurisdiction, and a spiritual foundation, since it owned church property, and finally a scholarly institution. The rector was the sovereign himself, the curator was the budget minister Freiherr von Fleckenbühl. The Senate elected the Vice-Rector every New Year's Day. The Senate consisted of the Chancellor, three theologians, six lawyers, two medical doctors and nine philosophers. In addition there were two French teachers, one English teacher and one Italian teacher, a stable master, a fencing master, a dance master, a concert master, a mechanic and a drawing master. The library was well stocked in the legal and historical subjects, as Johann Georg Estor had donated around 10,000 volumes. The purchase budget was 150 guilders (the equivalent of around 6,000 to 7,500 euros) annually. The university owned two bookstores, a printer and a pharmacy.
The famous philosopher Christian Wolff , who taught in Marburg until 1740, attracted many students. After his departure, the further development of the university stagnated. The university only experienced a new boom under Napoleon . For the first time in a long time, new university buildings were built. After the electors returned in 1813, the changes were largely reversed. With the end of the Westphalian period, its administrative organization as well as the joint “study fund” and the salaries of the professors disappeared from the state budget. In this renewed stagnation, the University of Marburg remained until Hessen-Kassel was dissolved in Prussia in 1866 . The annexation made the university a Prussian one and thus also experienced the advantages of Prussian educational policy. At that time the university had 264 students (22 of them non-Hessians) and 51 professors.
In the imperial period, the construction of today's fall Old University by Carl Schaefer . The building is considered a high-quality example of secular German neo-Gothic building . The auditorium, designed in the style of historicism , and the detention room for students are worth seeing .
Due to the property situation and the endeavor to use suitable state-owned buildings, the facilities of the university - unlike an Anglo-American campus university such as Bielefeld , Bochum and Konstanz - remained distributed over the city, which also had many advantages for the city and university Has. In 1880 500 students were enrolled, in 1887 the number of students rose to over 1000 for the first time.
20th and 21st centuries
The number of students doubled again by 1909. Although women were not yet admitted to study in Marburg, in 1905 a student was able to do a doctorate in medicine due to a special regulation. This was the Japanese Todako Urata. It was not the only exception: as early as 1827 the University of Johanna Wyttenbach awarded an honorary doctorate for its philosophical treatises on aesthetics. In the winter semester of 1908/09, 26 female students were enrolled at Philipps University for the first time. By the outbreak of World War I, their number had risen to 206.
The First World War was a deep turning point for the University of Marburg. There are no official numbers of war volunteers from Marburg. However, the number of refusal should have been relatively low, especially among students. While 2258 male students were still enrolled in the summer semester of 1914, the number decreased to 1899 in the following winter semester. And of these, only 478 had attended lectures. After three months of war, the university had already 55 fallen students.
In the anniversary year of 1927, the number of 3,000 enrolled was exceeded. From 1931 (4,387) the number of students experienced a significant slump - due to the low birth rate, but also from 1933 due to National Socialist regulations (restriction of women's studies, exclusion of Jewish students, compulsory services such as Reich labor service and military service before enrollment).
After the National Socialists came to power in 1933, 20 university professors from Marburg were expelled for racist or political reasons. That was more than a tenth of the faculty. The well-known economist Wilhelm Röpke , who emigrated to Turkey, was one of the expelled university teachers . The Jewish professor of Indo-European languages, Hermann Jacobsohn , committed suicide on April 27, 1933 after his leave of absence. Many scholars signed the German professors' confession of Adolf Hitler , including later opponents of the National Socialist regime such as the Romanist Werner Krauss .
Historically, Marburg has had a pronounced number of couleur students , which repeatedly led to conflicts and large police deployments by opponents of the event on the occasion of the market early pint of the fraternity students , which took place every year on the first Sunday in July until 2014 . Marburg fraternity students were responsible for the Mechterstadt murders in 1920 . By 1936, the Marburg student associations largely dissolved themselves in the course of the synchronization of the connections in the form of so-called comradeships in the National Socialist German Student Union . After the war, however, most of the associations were re-established according to their old, mostly apolitical principles; today they represent a rather marginal factor in university life.
After 1945 the number of students increased sharply. In order to meet the requirements, the university was expanded and expanded from 1960. New buildings were built for the administration building, the cafeteria and the lecture hall building. In addition, the Philosophical Faculty was established at B3 , and the old Elisabeth School had to give way to the Savignyhaus for law. The Faculty of Natural Sciences was founded on the campus "auf den Lahnberge " outside the city center at the end of the 1960s. The buildings there were implemented in the Marburg system , in the first precast concept of the federal German university building.
In the 1970s and 1980s, the University of Marburg, and in particular Faculty 03 “Social Sciences and Philosophy”, was a left stronghold . The Marxist political scientist Wolfgang Abendroth had been working here since the 1950s . After 1968, many of his "second generation" students, such as Frank Deppe , Georg Fülberth , Reinhard Kühnl and Dieter Boris , were appointed professors in political science and sociology. The political scientists associated with Abendroth formed the Marburg School , one of the three most influential schools of political science in the old Federal Republic, which differed from others in that it also referred to Marxist thinkers. In return, 35 veteran professors tried to defend themselves against the so-called “democratization of universities” and in April 1968 wrote the Marburg Manifesto , which ultimately did not lead to success.
In the 1970s, students were represented by the DKP-affiliated Marxist Student Union Spartakus (MSB) and in the 80s by the Green Bunt Alternative List (GBAL).
Today the Philipps University is characterized by its large number of small subjects, especially humanities, which enable numerous study combinations.
It is leading in rankings above all in the natural sciences, especially chemistry and biology, as well as in psychology. It is excellently recognized, for example, in materials science and nanotechnology, in tumor biology and microbiology, in neurosciences, in the field of optodynamics, peace and conflict research as well as other scientific, humanities and medical fields. In the field of research, it is considered to be exceptionally successful, as evidenced by many high awards for scientists at the university, in particular twelve Leibniz Prizes.
Historically unprecedented nationwide is the sale of the University Hospital to Rhön-Klinikum -AG, a private hospital group, on January 1, 2006, after it had previously been merged with the Giessen University Hospital. Since then, the clinic has been called " Universitätsklinikum Gießen und Marburg GmbH Marburg location". As part of the second phase of construction of the Clinic on the Lahnberge, the two new buildings of the Biomedical Research Center and the Central Medical Library have now been inaugurated, and the mother-child center moved in the summer of 2006.
There were numerous prominent university members .
The Philipps University of Marburg is divided into 16 departments (FB).
- 1971–1979: Rudolf Zingel (1920–2010)

In the beginning, the university consisted of the theological, medical, legal and philosophical faculties , from which the mathematics and natural sciences faculty was spun off in 1964. In 1970 the faculties were converted into 20 departments with the Hessian Higher Education Act. After 1997, some departments were merged, so that the numbering of the now 16 departments is no longer consistent today.
In addition, the Philipps University of Marburg has the largest pharmacy department in Germany.

Promotion of young talent - Marburg University Research Academy
The MArburg University Research Academy (MARA) was founded in 2008 as a scientific center on the initiative of the Vice President for Young Scientists and Equal Opportunities, Babette Simon. It is an institution with a university-wide, interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary focus. Its objective is to optimize the career opportunities of young academics from the beginning of their doctorate through to establishment in an academic or non-academic environment and to provide the necessary framework conditions. The different paths in academic careers and professional development within and outside the university should be taken into account. One of its core tasks is the interdisciplinary, non-specialist further education of young scientists. In workshops and seminars geared towards specific target groups, doctoral candidates and postdocs can acquire or deepen professionally relevant core competencies (transferable skills) in research and teaching, leadership and management. In addition to the continuing education offers, the tasks of MARA also include various financial support options, advice and support in building networks.
German Documentation Center for Art History - Photo Archive Photo Marburg
The contract includes the collection, indexing and mediation of photographs on European art and architecture as well as research into the history, practice and theory of the transmission of visual cultural assets. In particular, the exploration of the associated media transformation processes, the conditions for storing knowledge in visual form and the meaning of the memory of visual culture in society. With around 1.7 million photos, Foto Marburg is one of the largest image archives for European art and architecture. By developing cooperative structures, Foto Marburg supports the documentation work at museums, monument offices, libraries and research institutes. With the publication of image material and cataloging data from over 80 partner institutions, the German Documentation Center serves publishers, editors, scientists and anyone interested.
Information center for foreign language research
The central task of the IFS is the documentation of publications on foreign language research , in particular on the methodology and didactics of modern foreign language teaching, in a literature database with around 75,000 entries (August 2018). All important German and a large number of international specialist journals as well as monographs , compilations , e-journals , teaching materials, learning software and gray materials from the above-mentioned areas are documented.
Center for Gender Studies and Feminist Future Research
The Center for Gender Studies and Feminist Future Research is located in Block F of the Humanities Faculties (Philfak) and is a central, interdisciplinary research institution with the aim of profiling and strengthening women's and gender studies at Philipps University. The permanent members of the center are scientists from 14 disciplines from six departments of the Philipps University. Since 2002, the center has organized a working group for female post-doctoral candidates. It organizes the Gender Studies and Feminist Science study program . The center issues its own series of publications that appear irregularly.
Marburg Botanical Garden
The university's botanical garden is located on the Lahn Mountains . It was built in the years 1961–1977 in the immediate vicinity of Department 17 Biology . With 20 hectares, it is one of the larger botanical gardens in Germany. The main focus of the collections are the arboretum with many conifers , a large collection of rhododendrons, the spring forest and an alpine plant containing mountain plants from numerous continents. Many plants from the tropical rainforests are shown in the greenhouses, including the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) , the largest flower in the world. It also houses teaching collections and test areas that are not open to the public.
Center for Synthetic Microbiology - SYNMIKRO
The goals of the Scientific Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO) are the understanding, synthesis, combination and integration of new cellular functional units for the production of microorganisms with novel properties and thus a wide range of application potentials in biotechnology and medicine. The cooperation of numerous scientific members from the Philipps University and the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology offers many opportunities to expand the understanding of the molecular basis and the potential use of microorganisms and thereby open up new application possibilities.
The Marburg students are represented beyond their own departments by the General Student Committee (AStA) . The AStA consists of four boards, two general and two for finances, as well as units and autonomous units. The AStA and other committees are elected by the student parliament (StuPa) in the first, constituent session at the beginning of a legislature and are accountable to this committee in each session ( item 3 of each agenda ). The student parliament is elected for one year in the summer semester (beginning in October) by all eligible students.
Within the departments, their students are represented by the respective student council. Among other things, they sit on the faculty council with the professors of the faculty. The representation and connection of the student councils is also guaranteed by the student councils conference (FSK).
On April 19, 2005, speakers from the Marburg AStA and the transport associations RMV and NVV signed the continuation of the semester ticket until 2011, which was confirmed by the 40th StuPa. This means that Marburg students can use all public transport (up to and including the regional express of Deutsche Bahn ) in the entire RMV and NVV as well as in the Hessian part of the VRN (RMV transition area) . Student representatives from other Hessian universities have also taken part in the negotiations with the RMV (hence the success of the negotiations), although their tickets mostly have a smaller range due to different public transport conditions. The Marburg semester ticket is now also valid in the entire VGWS area.
Deutsche Bahn withdrew from negotiations about an InterCity surcharge, so that IC use was no longer possible from the summer semester 2005. In the 2006/07 winter semester, the AStA succeeded in bringing Deutsche Bahn back to the negotiating table, so that since the 2006/07 summer semester all Marburg students have again had the IC ticket (now without an additional ticket).
After the DB used the previous IC line 26 (Karlsruhe - Stralsund), the Marburg u. a. connects with Frankfurt and Kassel, largely switched to ICE trains, the Marburg semester ticket is now also valid in ICE trains on the Heidelberg - Frankfurt - Marburg - Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe section, as well as on all IC trains in Hesse and to some cities in neighboring federal states.
Due to the relatively large area covered in local transport and the possibility of using IC and ICE trains, the Marburg semester ticket is unofficially referred to as the “best semester ticket in Germany”.
The Christian-Wolff-Haus (CWH-Marburg) is one of the Marburg student residences . It was named after the philosopher Christian Wolff (1679–1754) and is known to many former Marburg students. The building at Friedrich-Ebert-Straße 111 was built in 1962 as a dormitory for around 100 doctoral students and expanded in 1990 and 1992 to a dormitory complex with five buildings and a total of 258 dormitory places (Friedrich-Ebert-Str. 113, 115, 117 and 119). It is now open to all kinds of students and is owned by the Marburg Student Union . The building complex is located in the Richtsberg district and close to the university buildings of the natural science departments on the Lahn Mountains.
The Collegium Philippinum is a self-managed student residence run by the university. It was founded in 1946 and has since served the scholarship holders of the Hessian Scholarship Institution as a dormitory, but is in principle open to all students, regardless of gender, denomination, origin or course of study of the applicant. The Collegium Philippinum is part of the Marburg Palace and provides 39 dormitory places, six of them in double rooms (as of 2017).
The "Collegium Gentium" set up with the support of the American occupying forces, a self-managed student residence on the upper floor of the former hunter barracks from the 19th century (today: the location of the psychology department), was wound up and closed after around 60 years. A special feature throughout Germany was the Konrad Biesalski House in the 1960s . A place to live was created here for people with physical disabilities and who need a lot of assistance . With this model, this dorm still has a unique selling point. The rescue chutes represent a unique architectural feature of preventive fire protection in the university landscape .
In addition to the lectures, the university also offers cultural, sports and leisure activities. Almost 100 different sports are available in university sports, including ball and team sports such as rugby , lacrosse or American football, water sports, equestrian sports and martial arts as well as yoga and Shiatsu. Every year in the summer semester the “SportDies” takes place on one day, where sporting events for students are covered all over the city.
The language center enables students from all departments to learn different languages. Subject-specific language courses can also be chosen. There are also free services such as a university-wide W-LAN , scanning of documents and books and a university e-mail address. For those interested in music, there is the student symphony orchestra , the university choir , the Young Marburg Philharmonic , the student BigBand Marburg and public practice rooms.
In addition, at the beginning of the semester there is a “first party” for new students under the direction of the AStA and parties from numerous student councils. There are a total of 29 student associations in Marburg .
