Our (current) premises

New buildings are necessary in order to establish a satellite campus of the University of Bayreuth in Kulmbach.

These will include house offices, seminar rooms, research laboratories, as well as rooms for administration and service. Until the new building works are completed, various areas in Kulmbach will be used in the transitional period. 

Currently, Faculty administration is located on the premises of Kulmbacher Spinnerei. The former administration mansion (Fritz-Hornschuch-Str. 13) provides conference, seminar, and meeting rooms, which can be used for various university and non-university events (both by in-house and external interested parties). Further architectural developments are progressing continuously.

The address and directions can be found here
