Direct loans

By providing financial support to Collegium Academicum, you support a self-managed housing project, creative young people and self-determined learning and living in Heidelberg. This will be more than a home for over 200 young people. We are creating a meeting space, an inspiring environment to unlock potentials, a place for chasing dreams and grow together as a community through doing concrete projects and living together.

Your direct loan helps to empower young people and enables them to experience that they are able to make a difference and change their environment.

You also support an innovative building project that not only sets an example in terms of sustainability through its wooden construction, but also contributes to a lively local community in the Heidelberg district Rohrbach.

Your help is welcome! Please take a look at our webpages and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Current status

We have managed to raise € 2,300,000 EUR (September 2020) in direct loans to fund the New House! Thank you! We are grateful to everyone whose financial contribution has helped us and is still helping to realize this project.

To finance the old buildings we still need your help and are thankful if you can participate in the collective success of the project. In total, we estimate the need of an additional 1.5 MM€ in direct loans, with 450.000 € until the end of the year.

That is why we would be very glad about further support! Here you can read why we need direct loans and how they work.
