Life in the City of Marburg is shaped by its students. There are currently about 26,000 living among Marburg's 80,000 inhabitants. The city of Marburg is distinguished by its location beneath the castle. Many cafes and pubs can be found in the traffic-calmed Oberstadt (upper level of the city) district.

The University of Marburg was founded in 1527. The University's institutions reflect this long history through their diversity. The University of Marburg does not have a self-contained campus. The various institutes for the University's individual departments are located in the city centre, within easy walking distance for the most part.
