Near by Carl Zeiss AG the
campus gets talked about, not only because of its charming architectural design: After renovating the last building in October 2008 the university has altogether 1.500 rooms with excellent technical equipments.
Old and listed industrial buildings constitute now a modern campus with 124 laboratories, seven lecture halls and 52 seminar rooms.
Learning together or have a break in the cafeteria with a hot cup of cappuccino? Writing your homework at the library? There are plenty of meeting points and learning areas. The list is completed by a new refectory
and a dormitory run by Thuringian Student Services Association.
Situated in Jena's southwest, the university is within easy reach of the city centre. Four bus lines connect the campus with the city of Jena.
