Future Location: Riedberg

After completion of the new building of Faculty 12 Computer Science and Mathematics, IT will move to the natural science campus of the Goethe University on Riedberg. The new location of the department will be in the immediate vicinity of the Otto Stern Center, the lecture building on the Riedberg campus, and the Uni-Campus Riedberg underground station. Until the move after 2025, the department will remain at the old traditional location in Bockenheim.
