Koserstraße 20

Built in 1963 – 1968, this building was initially used solely by the department of veterinary medicine. The history and cultural studies departments moved in after extensive renovation work in the 1990s. The modernization of the heating system and insulation of the roof, renewal of the ventilation system and the university’s internal energy saver incentive scheme have resulted in the reduction of the building’s annual heating requirements by over 40 % between 2001 and 2012. In 2012, a photovoltaic system (93 kWp) was installed on the roof and covers around 10 % of the building’s total electricity requirements.
