Generating knowledge

Campus WU was built to reflect the university’s academic structure, which is organized into departments. The institutes are concentrated into the campus’ five department buildings for increased convenience and efficiency in the faculty’s everyday work. The department buildings were designed to create the best possible working conditions for WU’s faculty and staff.
