Goethe University has campuses in Bockenheim, Westend, Riedberg, and
Niederrad. While very different and distinct in character, all campuses
are conveniently located and well serviced by public transportation.
The new Westend Campus with its park-like ambiance
and beautiful travertine-faced buildings is one of Germany's most
attractive. In addition to state-of-the-art lecture rooms, the campus
has a beer garden, and several light-filled restaurants and cafes.
The former main campus in Bockenheim is scheduled to be closed within a couple years.
Riedberg Campus is home to the natural sciences at
Goethe University—geo-sciences/geography, physics, biochemistry,
chemistry, pharmacy, and biology. Modern buildings offer
state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories. The new Otto Stern Centre
forms the heart and center of the campus, providing not only a library
and lecture hall centre, but a place for students and faculty to gather.
Set directly on banks of the River Main, Niederrad
Campus is the seat of the Medical Faculty and the University Hospital.
It is also undergoing reconstruction and expansion, and offers a mix of
modern, new buildings and charming old ones.
