The Medical Campus

A new medical research and teaching campus for Kiel University is being constructed along Feldstraße. This will consist of two new research buildings and a study campus with a new lecture hall building. Research labs and lecture halls which were previously spread across numerous departments of the UKSH campus will thus be arranged on one campus. For students in particular, the medical campus should be a place of contact and exchange.

In line with the existing surrounding buildings, some of which are listed buildings, the facades of the new medical campus buildings will be designed in yellow brick, and thereby set apart from the colour and material of the new central clinic made of red brick.

In March 2016, the ground-breaking ceremony was held for the first new research building, which marked the start of developing the site as a university medical campus. The five-storey new building will have a usable space of over 4,100 square metres. Thanks to modular structures, the laboratory and office spaces can be easily modified to suit changing research projects and varying needs, so that the scientists can use the research building flexibly. The facade will incorporate a large glass area facing Feldstraße.

We aim to achieve silver certification according to the national assessment system for sustainable building (BNB) for this new research building.
