How to find us on the Campus? - a pictorial story...

 

1 Our journey starts at the terminal destination of the tram line 6 Universität Nord. 2 We first cross the tracks, and then cross the street 'Am Biologischen Garten', following the red brick road along the 'Hochschulring'. 3 Leave the IW3-building on your right and proceed to the next building (again, it is built with the famous Bremen red bricks).

 

4 Enter the building named 'Cognium'. 5 Proceed to the elevator which is slightly to the left when you entered the building. 6 Take a ride to the second floor, but have patience: the elevator is rather slow...
7 When you step outside, turn to your left and cross the hallway. 8 Do not stop by our Espresso machine; you may be rewarded with some coffee soon! 9 Press this button to activate the bell. One of our concierges will soon be at your service and guide you to the door right behind the fire extinguisher.
