Press Office

The Press Office of Bielefeld University is at the interface between the University and regional, national and international media. We see our role as intermediaries and advisors between the academic world and the media world. We are the first point of call for all questions concerning the media for everyone at the University. We are also the contact persons for journalists in newspapers, magazines, radio, television and digital media.

We publish press information on current topics and establish contacts to academic experts. We advise scientists, bodies and institutions of Bielefeld University on ways to receive more exposure in the media. We develop concepts, research and publish the University's in-house magazines, H1 and BI.research as well as the staff newsletter, uni.intern.

We focus thematically on newsworthy developments and achievements of the University in teaching and research. We report on campus life, above and beyond the vast number of official events on offer. We make the development of Bielefeld University transparent for the media and public.
