Building and construction & campus development

Kiel University’s campus is currently undergoing a complete renewal. By 2022, one third of the university’s buildings will be rebuilt or completely renovated, with a further third completed by 2026. This renewal will result in state-of-the-art research infrastructures. The Faculty of Engineering is getting a new research building, with ultra-modern research buildings and new buildings for other faculties also being added to the campus on Westufer. Lecture theatres and seminar rooms are being upgraded to the latest technological standards, and a joint specialised library will create attractive working conditions for the students. All in all, construction work will cost around half a billion Euros. The university is thus amongst the largest urban construction projects in Schleswig-Holstein.

All building and construction projects will be coordinated and planned by the team at Kiel University's Facility Management, and implemented in close cooperation with the Gebäudemanagement Schleswig-Holstein (GMSH).



Abbreviations for roads, buildings and facilities are used in many places in Kiel University’s printed and online publications. The abbreviations used are explained here:
