Universität des Saarlandes
the university campus is composed of a great variety of different buildings and structures dating from the past eight decades. The first barracks buildings, which have been landmarked, were erected in the 1930s. Another building which dates back to the same time is the assembly hall; the recently renovated beautiful steel construction used to be an inddor riding ring. In the 1950s and 60s, the campus was enlarged by a number of functional buildings made of concrete, among which is a true gem: the cafeteria was created from 1966 to 1970 by local architect Walter Schrempf in close collaboration with a renowned representative of German abstract art, O. H. Hajek. In the past years, new university buildings have been put in place with striking glass facades, such as the Science Park, the IT Complex and the new Campus Center. The university buildings house lecture halls, libraries and research laboratories.
