Inspiring new neighbourhood


The Graduate School moved to a new location in September. After nearly four years in the “factory” at Neufeldtstraße, the GS now resides in a brand new building in the midst of the campus.

The new office building Leibnizstraße 3.

In fact, the facilities include two new buildings: one with office space, the other with a lecture hall and seminar rooms. Both are situated at the intersection of Leibnizstraße and Olshausenstraße.

“There are many advantages connected with the new address”, postdoc programme coordinator Hanno Kinkel points out. “For example, all the doctoral students and staff that were divided up in different places before the move are now researching and working on the same floor. This facilitates fast support in arising scientific questions among the graduates and fosters teambuilding.” Library and information expert Frank Förster remarks: “From our new offices, it is just a short walk to the university library.” Furthermore, it is now much easier for external guests to find the Graduate School.
