The campus of Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is located right in the middle of the city while being situated in natural surroundings, to the west of the castle grounds and on the edge of the Hardtwald forest. Five of our six faculties are located directly on the approximately 10-hectare campus proper. The inner-city campus buildings are all within easy walking or cycling distance. The Bruchsal campus is only 20 km away. About 8,000 students, more than 200 professors, over 600 academic and administrative staff, as well as about 400 lecturers have approx. 80,000 m² of gross building floor space at their disposal. Green open spaces with many trees are a distinctive feature of our campus and invite students, during most of the year, to study, hang out and get together under the blue sky typical for Karlsruhe. The tree population binds CO2 and improves the microclimate.
The master plan consists of three integral areas: Sustainable buildings and green open spaces - Emission-free mobility - Interaction and social empowerment. This makes the campus climate positive in two senses. On the one hand, in terms of reducing harmful emissions such as CO2, and on the other hand, as a place with exceptional quality of stay that contributes to the positive climate between people on campus.
In numerous subjects at HKA, research and teaching takes place, directly contributing in the form of student project work towards climate neutrality - directly on the spot on our HKA campus!
