Your first days on campus

Begin of the lecture period has been suspended until April 19

Today the Ministry for Science, Research, and the Arts has given us notice that the beginning of lectures at all Baden-Württemberg Universities has been suspended until April 19, as well as all courses which have already begun.

This also applies to all courses and events for first semester students!

We are anticipating further instructions from the Ministry and will provide that information.


Worth knowing when you get started

WLAN & Co. at the university

The Esslingen University would like to contribute to the de-escalation of the rapid spread of the Corona Virus, as well as protect all members of the University. For these reasons, the WLAN Tutorial on Friday, 20 March, was cancelled.

The computer centre has compiled all important information on the university network on the intranet:

Information on access to the university network

Mobile Net instructions

Contact and support of the data center

HE portal – University’s Intranet

HE portal – your entry point into the University’s Intranet

There are a number of areas that can be accessed internally by students that are not externally visible. For this reason, you should always log on to the HE portal. There you can find everything that could be interesting to you.

You access the portal with your personal username. There, you can find all the information you need about the lecture timetable/schedule (LSF), the learning platform, the University administration, and student representation - AStA, dates, and much more. 

Here, you can access the Intranet portal (after login) 


Guide for First Semester

The Guide for First Semester Students contains lots of information which will hopefully be useful and help you find your way around during your first few days on campus.

The Guide for First Semester Students can be downloaded here

Where are the lectures/classes held?

How to find your room

The rooms at Esslingen University are numbered according to the following system:

Example: S 1.204

S/F/G = The letter tells you which campus
(S = Esslingen City Centre Campus, F= Esslingen Hilltop Campus, Flandernstrasse, G = Goeppingen Campus)

The number before the point
tells you the building number

The numbers after the point tell you the room number:
the first number denotes the floor within the building. 
If there is a minus sign (-1) before the first digit, the room is in the basement.

Thus, in our example, S 1.204 is located
on the City Centre Campus
in building 1
on the 2nd floor
and has the room number 204.



Orientation events

The library organises individual orientation events at both locations for every degree programme so that you can familiarise yourself with all the services we offer right from the start.
