The Campus in Kulmbach
Teaching at the new satellite campus of the University of Bayreuth in Kulmbach started with the winter semester 2020/21. At that time we had to improvise a lot and rented various rooms at different locations for our lectures. Two years later, at the start of the 2022/23 winter semester, we reached a major milestone when we moved into the Old Spinning Mill ("Alte Spinnerei"), which had been renovated since 2019.
Various lecture rooms, a large lounge, a canteen, a library and several offices are now located here. The faculty administration has its offices in the former administration villa of the Kulmbach Spinning Mill. The laboratories, which have been equipped according to the latest standards, are integrated in the building of the Fritz shopping center, where some of the natural science chairs are also located.

Administration Villa, Fritz-Hornschuch-Straße 13
The offices of the faculty administration as well as the chairs of Digital Health, Food Sociology, Food Supply Chain Management, Food Law and Public Health Nutrition are located here. On the second floor there is a seminar room as well as the media laboratory.

Seminar room on the 2nd floor
The seminar room offers up to 20 seats and is used for lectures as well as for internal meetings.
Media lab on the 2nd floor
The modern media lab on the Campus in Kulmbach was created in close cooperation with the FZBHL. Here our teachers have the possibility to record their lectures in front of the green screen. In media and presentation training, our students learn and practice how scientific information can be produced and published in a manner that is comprehensible for the public.
Alte Spinnerei (ASP), Hans-Hacker-Straße 10
Right next to the administration villa is the Alte Spinnerei (Old Spinning Mill). In this large historic building the university uses two floors, which can be accessed via the southern staircase (bus terminal ZOB). There is barrier-free access (elevator) on the side facing the villa. The unrenovated part of the building is not part of the University premises - it is the site of the planned “Green Centre”.
This is where the mensa is located: It offers daily changing, healthy and varied meals to our students and employees. From a delicious breakfast to a rich lunch menue including a salad bar to an afternoon snack: balanced, sustainable, local, fair - always taking into account the sustainability guidelines of the Studierendenwerke. A modern and communicative ambience with space for up to 40 guests invites you to linger. Click here for the menue and opening hours.
