The real­iz­a­tion of a new WU cam­pus rep­res­ents an im­port­ant step in the uni­versity’s devel­op­ment, and a fur­ther mile­stone to­ward reach­ing its goal of fur­ther im­prov­ing its top pos­i­tion among European busi­ness schools.

The cent­ral build­ing, the Lib­rary & Learn­ing Center, is sur­roun­ded by five build­ing com­plexes designed by in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned ar­chi­tects. 35,000m2 of the cam­pus area is built up, the re­main­ing 55,000 m2 are pub­licly ac­cess­ible grounds.25,000 stu­dents and 1,500 teach­ers, re­search­ers and ad­min­is­trat­ive staff study and work on Cam­pus WU. In ad­di­tion to tra­di­tional aca­demic in­fra­struc­ture fa­cil­it­ies like classrooms, lib­rar­ies, and of­fices, the cam­pus also of­fers a num­ber of fa­cil­it­ies that are open to the pub­lic: res­taur­ants, cafes, a bakery, a su­per­mar­ket, book­stores, a child­care center, and an ath­letic center. Espe­cially dur­ing the sum­mer and semester breaks, many spaces on cam­pus are avail­able for rent as event ven­ues.
