Bielefeld University in Brief
Bielefeld University combines the best German university tradition with innovative research and teaching structures. Life and work at Bielefeld University benefit from the unique design of the university building, which places particular emphasis on interdisciplinary cooperation.
All 14 faculties, which are the basic units of research and teaching, and the different institutes are housed under one roof and are located within a short distance of each other. This construction provides an ideal framework for successful study and research, supported by one of the best libraries in Germany, with a computerized cataloguing and lending system, open access arrangement of its 1.8 million volumes, long opening hours, and a high density computer network, installed in all departments, which can be used by all students free of charge round the clock. The central hall of the main building is a meeting place, a lively centre of communication. With its shops and cafés it forms an inviting centre in which to chat, relax, meet people and find out what is happening. For recreation the university offers an indoor pool, a gymnasium, tennis courts and a football (soccer) field, all located on the campus of Bielefeld University.
