Campus Friedrich Streib

The Campus Friedrich Streib offers an impressive view of the historic old town of Coburg and the Fortress Coburg. Three quarters of our students are at this campus and study in the fields of natural sciences and engineering, social work and health as well as business administration. The university administration and the central administration have their headquarters here.

The first buildings on Campus Friedrich Streib were dedicated and opened on May 20, 1960; they were from the predecessor of the university, the State School of Construction. The first student dormitory was built in 1961.

In the following decades a modern university campus with lecture halls, seminar rooms, offices, laboratories and workshops developed. The campus currently includes five student dormitories with a total of 506 rooms and apartments.

In the coming years, the Campus Friedrich Streib will continue to develop. By 2021, the Free State of Bavaria will invest more than 60 million euros in an IT and Media Center, in laboratories and test benches, as well as in a parking deck and in the refurbishment of existing buildings.
