The University of Kassel is undergoing the greatest transformation in its 40-year history. In the coming years, the new Campus North will be built. The neighborhood between Moritzstrasse, Gottschalkstrasse and Mombachstrasse will be transformed into an educational landscape situated between the city and the park. The aim is to relocate the departments and facilities from Heinrich-Plett-Strasse in Kassel-Oberzwehren to the former Gottschalk site on Holländischer Platz (building structure concept).
As part of the Hessian state government's HEUREKA special investment program (Higher Education Development and Conversion Program: Circular Renewal, Concentration and Expansion of Research and Teaching in Hesse), around 200 million euros will be made available for the University of Kassel by 2020.
In the future, too, the main focus of the university's structural development will be to provide students, teachers, staff and scientists with excellent study and working conditions in terms of space and equipment.
The building structure concept drawn up back in 2005 and updated in 2017 continues to serve as the basis for the gradual expansion of the university.
