Growth will determine the next few years
In Hamm – on the spacious and green grounds of the former army hospital – new buildings for 2,500 students are being realised.
The architecture and room programme are orientated along the requirements of a modern education and research institute: Learning worlds reflect the practice-oriented study paths; the communication zones with a deliberately open layout are meeting points for teachers and students.
Since Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences commenced its teaching activities in May 2009, premises on the site of the former Paracelcus Barracks have been used. From the winter term 2013/2014, the new campus on the site of the former army hospital on Marker Allee will be occupied. However, before that the demolition of the army hospital is scheduled for the first half of 2011, so that construction works can be commenced in late summer.
In June 2010, pbr Planungsbüro Rohling from Osnabrück won the general planner competition for the new Hamm Campus. The competition had been initiated by the Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW Soest (Soest branch of the Development and Real Estate Management Company of North Rhine-Westphalia) as client in close collaboration with the Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences and the City of Hamm.
The planned room programme includes:
- auditoria and seminar rooms
- approx. 400 student workplaces
- offices and working worlds incl. large communication zones for the departments
- basic research laboratories with computer pool and physical-technical laboratories
- technical school and halls
- laboratory pool for teaching and research with store etc.
- media centre, computer centre and library
- central infrastructure and metal and electronics workshops
