Attractive Wels Campus

With us, studying is a collaboration between students and teachers. In addition to imparting knowledge, the focus is on applying knowledge. Therefore, it is important that students and teachers feel comfortable on campus and enjoy spending time here. The campus must therefore be a synthesis of working, learning and living space. This means that in addition to lecture halls, seminar and laboratory rooms, there must also be rooms and areas where students and lecturers can exchange ideas and relax.

In this context, a comprehensive initiative was launched two years ago to make the FH Upper Austria Campus Wels more attractive. The following infrastructure and offers have recently enriched life and work on campus.

  • Greening and redesign of the inner courtyard
  • New laboratory building
  • Student deck at the new laboratory building
  • StudyLounge in Building A
  • Redesign and expansion of the FH refectory
