Construction Progress

January 2021:

The campus of the University of Technology Nuremberg will be built on the site of the former southern railway station and in close proximity to the local recreation area Dutzendteich and the Nuremberg Fair. This campus is designed to be a living urban space embedded in its surroundings. Currently, the underlying structural plan is being drawn up, which will define the reorganization as regards urban development and open space planning of the conversion area. The resulting requirements for short-, medium- and long-term structural development will be translated step by step into area development plans. On the former railway wastelands, the removal of existing buildings and disposal of inherited burdens has been completed.

As an interim solution, the cleared area has been converted to environmentally valuable semi-natural grassland.

April 2021: Access Roads and Supply Lines

Currently, the main supply lines and the construction of local access roads are under way. The so-called “multi-use building“ – the first administration building for the University of Technology Nuremberg – is currently being planned. As early as in the second half of 2021, construction work for this building is scheduled to start. The structural requirements for the first buildings dedicated to research, teaching and the transfer of knowledge have been determined as a basis for further planning.

The winning design for the structural planning of the campus was selected at the end of April 2021 and publicly presented.

August 2021: Ground-breaking Ceremony

The structural planning is being fine-tuned in close cooperation with the city of Nuremberg and translated into a framework plan. The local access roads on the construction site are taking shape. Also, the groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for the first building.
