Campus Map

Enlarged image section of the campus map indicating the wheelchair accessible entrances to the building. Linked picture PDF is not accessible.


The IMB is located at the western end of campus. The entrance is accessible from Ackermannweg.


The entrance is fully accessible due to a stone ramp with a shallow incline and a guiding system for the blind leading from the sidewalk (Ackermannweg) to the building. Upon passing through the second door you can find the reception on the right side.

There is a tactile floor plan on the left of the atrium. To find it, turn left at the 1. t-crossing in the guiding system and follow it to the end. It will be directly on your right. The tactile floor plan only shows the public areas of the building. Do not be irritated, that there is semingly no outer wall, as there are labs indicated at the circumference of the public area, but not finished. The building itself is larger. The reception in the atrium is manned during normal opening hours who will be happy to assist.
