Building Z

In February 2018, construction work began on the university's new office building at the "Konsequenz", and ten months later the new building was inaugurated. It is used by the Faculty of Education, which is largely housed there. In 2020, it was extended by an additional part of the building. The extension doubles the usable area of the building to a total of 5,000 square metres of main floor space. In the process, additional office space with workstations for the Faculty of Medicine was created. The building is located between the lecture hall building Y and the H-building. The front part along the "Konsequenz" extends over four floors, the part behind it has three floors.
