Universität Luxembourg, Campus Limpertsberg
the main building was built in the Neo-Roman style by Franciscan nuns in 1903. During World War I, it was temporarily occupied by German troops, then by French troops from 1919 on. Between the two World Wars, it served as a training centre for female teachers and, later, it housed the Luxembourg Seminary. During World War II, it was provisionally converted into a military hospital and, after the war, it returned to being used as a seminary. From 1969, the building accommodated the University Centre until the official foundation of the University of Luxembourg in 2003. The most treasured part of the main building is the chapel on the first floor, which has been transformed into a quite extraordinary library. In 1992, new buildings were added to Campus Limpertsberg to host the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance and parts of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communications. The buildings house primarily auditoriums and research laboratories. A noteworthy particularity is the Foucault Pendulum in one of the lobbies. Limpertsberg Campus is a beautiful park-like terrain.
