The HHU Campus

The design of the campus by landscape architect Georg Penker is connected with the founding of the University of Düsseldorf in the 1960s as well as the construction of the buildings at that time. The campus was conceived as a landscape architectural work of art in allusion to the Rhenish landscapes with its valleys, terraces, rivers, dams and waved lines. 

The centre of scientific life, research and teaching, the HHU campus houses numerous works of art – for example the Roy Lichtenstein Auditorium, Heine statues and Heine monument. There are also many events that take place here which are directed at the public: Heinrich Heine visiting lecturers, the film festival, the campus fair, the student Sommerkult-Festival (summer music festival) and much more.
