Café Zeitraum – For everyone who loves coffee and people

Everyone needs a pause every now and then. So when the day gets long and tiredness kicks in, students meet at the café Zeitraum. It is a dynamic hub where they can relax or talk, but where they are also able to work on some projects. It’s not a secret that the café offers the best coffee on campus as well as various soft drinks and pastries. From time to time, the student council throws a party in this colourful room. Opening hours: Mo, We–Fr 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Tue 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

For the extra portion of motivation

Students who need to relieve all their brainwork and let steam out can join an activity they pick from the various sport programs.

Let’s make some blockbusters for the campus cinema
