All around your studies

At our university, students can take advantage of many services that are offered independently of the respective degree course.

  • Practice rooms

    Not everyone can, likes or is allowed to practise without restrictions within their own four walls. Therefore, we provide our students with extra rooms at various locations.
    Every person studying with us can reserve these rooms for three hours per day. Reservations are done online via our campus management system eOffice and is always possible 24 hours in advance.

    You can find a tutorial on the reservation system on our university’s Youtube channel:
    If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the »AG Raum« (working group on rooms) by e-mail (

    Please note the following points for all reservations:

    • Please check your room reservations to make sure they are up to date.
    • Reserve your classes early.
    • Please release room reservations if you do not use them or if times change, and inform the colleagues responsible for this at the relevant locations of the university in good time.
