Bockenheim is a city district of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is part of the Ortsbezirk Innenstadt II.

Bockenheim lies west of central Frankfurt and is the third largest district by population in Frankfurt after Sachsenhausen and the Nordend with approximately 35,000 inhabitants.

It is planned to demolish the University campus in Bockenheim, and relocate its faculties in campuses in other areas of Frankfurt.
