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.

Student Advice Center

The Student Advice Center: support from day 1

Beginning your studies means starting a whole new part of your life. It is normal to feel insecure and to have lots of questions in this situation:

  • What kind of support can you offer? Who should I go to for what? What do I have to know about rules and regulations? How does this all work?
  • Am I going to manage ok in my studies? Am I going to find new friends?
  • Help! I can't find a place to live! Do I have enough money for this?

What to do when…?  The Student Advice Centre can support you from Day 1 in all general and personal questions. Advice is given in strict confidence.
