Our Campus

What does the FS campus stand for?

Europe, Australia, Africa, America, Asia – the five continents reflect the international character of our new campus, and are each represented by one of the five towers of our university building. Each tower has a dedicated design adorning some walls. Furthermore, our campus garden is divided into five landscaped areas that evoke each of the five continents through their characteristic, native vegetation. Pines and oak trees stand for Europe, Tokyo cherry trees for Asia, the eucalyptus for Australia, the honey locust tree for Africa, sequoia and maple trees for America.

The mall, or “Zeil des Wissens”, is the central meeting place and axis that connects together every part of our campus. From here, you can reach the Audimax, the Steubing Learning Centre, the refectory, deli and – via stairs and lifts – other seminar rooms and classrooms, as well as various roof terraces. The listed Präsidialbau building in front of the campus has been preserved in its original form and is available as a venue for events. Frankfurt School has 38 seminar rooms with a total of 1,888 seats: 11 Harvard-style seminar rooms in amphitheatre layout, 22 classroom-style seminar rooms and 5 IT rooms. The Audimax can hold up to 400 people. And the first three floors of the campus boast a variety of open workspaces and breakout rooms with around 320 freely accessible workstations. The Frankfurt School campus has been awarded platinum certification by the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen, DGNB 2017 e.V.). In terms of environmental footprint and responsible use of resources, the campus meets all the Council’s requirements.
