Teaching Center und Departments

Campus WU Teaching Center

The façade of the Teaching Center is made of Corten weathering steel, which with time will form a protective, colored patina. The material was also used inside the Auditorium Maximum, extending the design of the façade into the interior of the building.

Building D1 faces the LC and houses the Department of Global Business and Trade and six Research Institutes. The Mensa cafeteria, seating over 600 guests and featuring a unique roof garden, takes up the central, lower section. This area can also be accessed directly from the TC building. The tall, monolithic block on the right-hand side contains the multifunctional auditorium center. Various auditoriums, equipped with state-of-the-art learning technologies, offer teaching and learning space for up to 5,000 students simultaneously.

Through the atrium, students can access a café and the self-study areas for quiet work, arranged in a spiral pattern around the atrium. Project rooms encourage communication and group work, and a mix of quiet areas and open spaces connected by ramps and staircases provide a dynamic atmosphere. The Teaching Center houses all the University's large auditoriums and the Auditorium Maximum, which seats 650 students.

All auditoriums, including the Auditorium Maximum, have natural daylight and state-of-the-art equipment.
