Closer to completion, opening in spring 201805/18/2017
Located right at the foot of the bridge linking the established southern and the newly developed northern part of the Hubland Campus, the new Graduate Schools Building will become a landmark for every campus visitor.
From initial plans to the groundbreaking and the topping-out ceremony it took less than 14 months. The Graduate Schools were originally scheduled to move into the new building before the end of 2017. Due to delays in finishing the interior, the building is now planned to go into operation in spring 2018.
800 doctoral researchers will then have a new center to relate to. While they will do their research at the research institutes, the new building will be a place for symposia, workshops and exhibitions as well as for networking events. Rooms can be booked for longer periods of time, e.g. for thesis or paper writing in seclusion, and all administrative matters regarding doctoral researchers and postdocs will be handled in one spot.
