The University Campus is not just somewhere to attend lectures and hit the books—it’s also a place to meet and muse with friends.

New students might find our Main Building—home to the humanities—with its majestic cupola a bit imposing. Yet once inside, you will soon feel at home in its historic and light-filled lecture halls.
At the center of the Campus is the duck pond, flanked by a pleasant green lawn. In summer, you can sunbathe and watch the birdlife between classes. When it freezes over in winter, dig out your skates for some winter sports!

Our 15-storey Phil-Turm (Philosophers’ Tower) is another Campus highlight offering amazing panoramic views of the city. Climbing the stairs to get to class also helps you get fit while studying!
Studying is bound to make your stomach growl: our three dining halls and numerous Campus cafés brighten up every break with the prospect of a square meal or a lazy coffee.
The Pony Bar is located in the former stables, which are now home to the Department of Social Sciences.
