Construction work is scheduled to be completed by the coming winter semester

Four new lecture theaters in two highly efficient and sustainable timber frame buildings: On Friday, March 17, 2023, the topping out ceremony for both buildings took place on the FAU Campus Erlangen (South). Vice President Prof. Dr. Andreas Hirsch noted the significance of the event: “Our University is in the middle of a decade of change and modernization. These two new lecture theaters are an important part of the future of FAU and will make a lasting improvement to the University.”

Both buildings mean that FAU will have four modern and attractive lecture theaters with a total of 1,658 seats on the FAU Campus Erlangen (South). The project, which cost 22.5 million euros, was planned with sustainability in mind and is a timber construction using untreated wood of a single variety and erected with the greatest possible avoidance of petroleum-based insulating materials.
