Both university campuses can be reached by bus, bicycle or on foot, and all university facilities are located on campus. Lecture halls, laboratories, library, athletic facilities, student housing and other service units are all within easy reach of each other.

Campus I and Campus II are both set in a sprawling park landscape dotted with numerous works of modern art, sunning lawns, streams and ponds – the ideal setting to relax and take a break from daily university life. Landscape architects recently named the park one of 100 special places in Germany.
