Map of Dessau Campus

The relaxed atmosphere, inspiring exchanges with professors, and short distances - just a few of the benefits of the campus in Dessau. The international students and cooperation partnerships with global players from business and universities around the world ensure there is an international feeling on campus. A relatively small campus in a small city does not have to mean a narrow mindset, as is demonstrated with many projects, films, exhibitions, conferences, and colloquia. Short distances for transferring knowledge, inspiration, and enjoyment of thinking.
