From Apartments and Flats to the Campus

Initially, FernUniversität’s departments were housed in rented apartments and buildings dotted all over Hagen and even outside the city. The development of FernUniversität’s Campus near the motorways A 45 and A 46 began in 1980 with the first office building Allgemeines Verfügungszentrum (AVZ I). Further buildings followed. These are: Eugen-Schmalenbach-Building (AVZ II), Philipp-Reis-Building, Centre of Technology and Innovation (TGZ), the extension of the University Library, and the new canteen. As more and more university buildings are concentrated on the Campus, it becomes easier for the employees in the different areas to cooperate.
