FAQs about the expansion-building
- What exactly does the HNU build?
As the space in the main building is running short for 3800 students, the HNU is building a second building where additional seminar rooms, offices and a cafeteria will find their place. Besides, furhter laboratories will be put up in the expansion-building. The campus will grow through the expansion and thus provide enough space for all faculties.
- How long will the construction take?
The Wiley-Gymnasium will be demolished in autumn 2015 and the plot will be prepared. The construction will be started in spring 2016. If completed as planned, the HNU can move in to the winter term 2018/2019.
- Will the stduy conditions be disturbed? For example, will it be extremely loud some time or is the parking lot closed?
Through out the demolition phase in autumn, the noise level can raise for short times. Later stages of construction can also cause noise from time to time. The parking lot will be kept free from the construcion process as far as possible.
The HNU is trying to inform about distructions as soon as possible through the construction blog.
- Do residents need to fear parking construction vehicles?
The construcion vehicles will stay on the plot as far as possible. Still, arrivals and departures can cause short distractions. We will try to keep the roads mainly free.
- Where are differences between the two buildings?
The new building will be smaller than the older one. With it's white façade, it will be a contrast to the black main building.
- What happens to the water tower?
The water tower will be preserved. The new parking lot will be build around it.
