The abbreviation AVZ

People often refer to the university site on Heinrich-Plett-Strasse by its abbreviation AVZ. This shortened form goes back to the time when the university was founded and in German stands for Development and Disposal Centre.

[Translate to Englisch:] Haltestellen:

  • "Heinrich-Plett-Straße"
    Tramlinie 3, 6, 7
  • "Korbacher Straße/Universität"
    Tramlinie 3, 7

• Take tram 3 or 7 heading for “Mattenberg” at Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe (railway station) and travel as far as the “Korbacher Strasse/Universität” stop.

By bike

The faculty site is connected to the city’s network of cycle paths and is easy to reach using the cycle path on Sophie-Scholl Strasse or from the R1 Fulda Cycle Path via “Märchenviertel”.
