Department of Urban and Spatial Planning
Urban and Spatial Planning deals with the diverse needs of society for the built and unbuilt environment and the resulting conﬂicts of use and opportunities for action, including in the fields of residential development, the economy, leisure and recreation, mobility, nature conservation and social and technical infrastructure.
Urban and spatial planners endeavour to reconcile conflicting demands on space, avoid conflicts and initiate, support and coordinate planning processes. For this purpose, they draft municipal or regional development concepts and strategies and oversee their implementation. Other areas in which they can work include professional associations, non-governmental organizations or academic and research institutions. Teamwork, flexibility and project and process-oriented approaches are key competences that Urban and Spatial Planning graduates bring to the workplace.

Computer pools and workshops
The Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning is equipped with modern PC and Mac workstations, as well as printers, plotters and state-of-the-art software - all creating the ideal conditions for future-oriented training in our field. In our digital print workshop you can prepare posters, brochures or books on the computer - an essential skill you will need with regard to marketing and competition.
In our model-making workshop, you can build working models to test your ideas before ultimately preparing them for presentation. An in-house photo studio is available for follow-up documentation, but also for artistic photography. The sculpture workshop in the basement also serves to develop our students' artistic and creative skills.
Galerie and media lounge
All key events, such as our first-semester orientation event, take place in the auditorium, which is often bursting at the seams. In addition, the Architecture Forum is regularly held with lectures and presentations by well-known architects. Like the exhibitions in our in-house gallery, this is an established part of Erfurt's cultural scene.
The media lounge is an interesting addition to these cultural and professional events. Here you can immediately find answers to current questions, seek inspiration or browse through specialist literature for your term papers.
Cafeteria and outdoor space
Learning is hungry business, and creative breaks are often a source of new insights. This means that our cafeteria is not only an important meeting place at lunchtimes. In summer, the doors to the courtyard are opened and you can sit on the terrace, sunbathe on the lawn, read or continue your discussions outdoors...
