The idea to revitalise the Anger grounds, finalised in 2017, is founded on the principle of creating an open campus that seamlessly integrates with the city and reflects the university's commitment to engaging the public and transferring knowledge to the wider community. This vision is supported by the close proximity of Veloroute 10, which not only links the Grasweg (Institute of Pharmacy), Bremerskamp and Westring campus areas to the main campus, but also brings start-ups, public and private institutions closer to research and teaching. It has been decided to demolish the 1960s buildings on the Anger grounds and replace them with cutting-edge facilities in the coming years and decades. The design and construction of these new buildings is currently underway.
The new building for the agricultural sciences institutes will be a modern lab and office building, which will also include the Computing Centre offices.
The urban development objective of the new Institute of Geosciences building is to generate an independent, distinctive building that can depict the extensive spatial programme and blend in with the existing campus structure.
In addition to labs and offices for the Department of Geography, the first two floors of the new 5 storey building will include a modern seminar area with working space for students.
The new Department of Mathematics building is planned next to the Wissenschaftspark. In addition to classrooms and offices, the new building will also hold the joint library belonging to the Departments of Mathematics, Computer Science and the Computing Centre.
