Enjoy a colorful program on Campus WU

Our campus is a place where people come together. To kick off the new academic year, we would like to show the diversity and energy of Campus WU. We’ve put together a colorful program (until October 8, 2021):

  • An outdoor art gallery on campus featuring works by emerging Austrian artists, curated by WU alumna Ursula Tuczka from the Metropolitain Art Club

  • Light installations projected onto the LC building (every day from 7:30 to 10:30pm)

  • A chill-out area on the steps in front of the LC building

  • A photo booth in front of the LC building
