In the interest of all users we request your active participation, in particular in the fields of barrier-free access, safety and waste separation.

Barrier-free access 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: www.uibk.ac.at/rektorenteam/infrastruktur/planunterlagen

Where to discard of waste?!?

The increasing number of coffee to-go-cups, which are discarded after only one use, are an enormous waste of resources (energy, water, oil, wood) and pollute our environment. With your request for and your use of already offered reusable options you can contribute to the protection of our environment and climate.

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. We need the help of every single person to increase the share of collected materials, such as glass, plastic, metals and paper collected for recycling. Please integrate waste separation into your everyday life as students, as well as in your private lives.

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.
