Diversity Room - one room for many

Since the summer semester of 2022, the Diversity Room on the Saarbrücken Campus, which was created in cooperation with the Campus Development and Construction Management Department and with funding from the Teaching and Studies Fund (Fonds Lehre und Studium - LuS), has also been available to students with disabilities or chronic illnesses. The Diversity Room serves, among other things, as a workstation with technical support for students with visual impairments or dyslexia, a place to take exams and a quiet room for students with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD or physical impairments. It is located in building E1 2, room 0.09.

Access is regulated by the KSB. If you would like to use the room, please contact: ksb(at)uni-saarland.de
