The Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin encompasses four locations, each one termed one "Campus" - the colloquially plural being "Campi". The Latin word "Campus" originally meant an “un-used field“. Newer definitions of "Campus" refer to an enclosed area, usually for colleges or universities, with several buildings for research, teaching, studies, relaxation, and living quarters for students and teachers.

Medical care and treatment is offered on three campi, teaching and research is offered on all four campi. The four campi of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin are:

The Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin with its four campi is a joint institute of the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Child day-care center for visitors (Kita)

Child day-care services for visitors, which are located on Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Oststraße 3, are available Mondays to Fridays between 2pm and 7pm (up to four hours). This service is available to visitors with children between two and six years of age. For further information please call us on +49 30 8179 9165. 


There are currently no day-care provisions on either Campus Charité Mitte or Campus Benjamin Franklin. The staff at the Campus Virchow-Klinikum 'Kita' are therefore happy to accept children of patients and visitors from the other two campuses.

Clothing and Toiletries

You will need a number of items during your stay at the hospital. Please ensure to bring these with you, or ask someone else to bring them for you:

  • Nightgown/pajamas
  • Toiletries
  • Slippers
  • Bathrobe
  • Casual clothing

Your health permitting, you may wish to take a stroll around campus, and therefore may wish to bring some casual clothing. Before you leave your room, please ensure that you are dressed appropriately and let our nursing staff know when you expect to return.


Rather than in the trash cans, please place all paper waste, such as newspapers or magazine, in the designated paper recycling containers or give to our cleaning staff. By taking this simple step and separating out paper, we are able to recycle up to 650 tons of paper yearly. Environmental conservation is critical to society’s overall health and an important part of our business concept at the Charité. Your participation and support help the Charité in its efforts to protect our environment.
