Lecture Hall Building Y

The new Lecture Hall Building Y is being built just a few metres from the main university building. A lecture hall with about 650 seats and three seminar rooms will be erected in the direct vicinity of Building Z. The construction of the new Lecture Hall Building will create additional space for teaching. During the modernisation measures of the first construction phase, the Audimax in the main university building will only be available until the beginning of 2020. The new Lecture Hall Building was planned as the University could not do without its largest lecture hall for an extended period of time. In addition, the University also has a need for additional teaching space in the long term.

Main usable area 940 m²
