Located centrally and yet close to nature
Lippstadt is a town in North-Rhine Westfalia, Germany, with approximately 67,000 inhabitants. It is home to many big and medium sized companies - the German Mittelstand. The globally active automobile supplier Hella is based in the direct vicinity of the university's campus. With about 6,000 employees, this high-tech corporation is not just the largest employer in the city, but also offers you excellent career prospects already whilst studying, just like the CARTEC Technology Centre, where many successful companies have already been founded in the past. The railway station is only a ten-minute walk away. Via the through road B55, the motorway is within easy reach. And those who
want to travel far away can reach many national and international destinations at cheap rates from the Paderborn-Lippstadt airport.
The new Lippstadt Campus on the site of the so-called "Himmelreich" has been opened. The architecture and room program 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.
In June 2010, practice RKW Rhode Kellermann Wawrowsky from Düsseldorf won the general planner competition for the new Lippstadt Campus. The competition had been initiated by 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 Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences and the City of Lippstadt.
