Cupola building, philosophers' tower, duck pond, and more...
The University campus is a meeting place - not only for attending lectures and hitting books in the libraries.
Starters might find our Main Building's cupola structure - home to the humanities - a bit awe-inspiring. Do not hesitate! Once you have crossed the doorstep you will soon feel at home in its beautiful lecture halls and surroundings.
Other buildings on campus also provide highlights. For instance, the Philosophers' Tower commonly called Phil-Turm, a 15 storey-building that offers a great panoramic view of the city. If you are there to attend a lecture or class, you may want to climb the stairs to the top for exercise and enjoy the prospect.
A place to relax
On mid-campus you will find our Duck Pond near a plot of green. In summer it invites to relax, sunbathe and observing the water fowl between classes. When it is frozen in winter you may dig up your skates waiting for spring's arrival.
Studying makes hungry: our three dining halls and numerous campus cafés brighten up every break. You might also enjoy a walk to the public greenhouse in Universität Hamburg's Botanical Garden Planten un Blomen.
When you have studied enough for the day you can conclude it with fun at the cozy Pony Bar. It's name is derived from the old "Horse Stables;" nowadays it houses the department of Social Sciences. The Pony Bar offers diverse entertainment every night: concerts, meeting the regulars, etc. Sundays are reserved for Tatort Club, to watch the most popular German TV crime series Tatort. All this makes campus attractive, even on the weekend...
