In the 2016 – 2020 term Ms. Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Anke Bockreis is acc. to the regulations responsible for all matters relating to buildings and rooms at the university, for the fulfilment of the house and house use regulations, for the protection of the buildings and building and organisational measures in relation to the protection of employees and safety in general.

Barrier-free and safety

Please ensure free access for the fire brigade and ambulance, free access to emergency exits and free access to barrier-free buildings (guidance system for the blind on the floor, stair lift and rails). Don’t park your bike or other things in the access areas or in any marked zones!

The university governance aims at providing sufficient bike racks and where necessary to improve the available facilities. Please use them. Click the link to find the designated areas for parking your bike:

Waste separation at the University of Innsbruck

At the University of Innsbruck there are waste collection stations for separately collecting glass, plastic, metal, paper and residual waste. Area-wide provision of these bins is part of the university’s waste management concept, which focuses on sustainability and cost reduction. To preserve resources, we aim at increasing the share of precious materials such as glass, plastic, metal and paper collected for recycling.

To do so we need help from every single person and we therefore request your active support by integrating waste separation into your everyday life as students! And of course during your private lives as well!

Where to discard of waste?!?

Waste is not supposed to be discarded in the lecture hall! Which is why bin systems (3 or 5 bins each) for separating waste have been placed in this area. For the empty beverage can to be disposed into the metal bin and the empty pen into the residual waste bin we have added pictographs on the respective bins to assist you in selecting the correct bin.
