May 16 - The K

The building on Großer Grasbrook 17 - in the heart of the HafenCity quarter - is currently undergoing extensive construction and redevelopment work.
According to KLU, the new site offers views over the river Elbe, container terminals and docks creating a strong link to its teaching and research.
When complete, the centerpiece of KLU will be an egg-shaped auditorium, decorated in gold, capable of sitting 300 students. The facility will also be used for congresses and events.
The new campus will open its doors in September 2013 to coincide with the winter semester. KLU will share the 12,000 sq m site with another university - Medical School Hamburg.
The opening ceremony for the new building will be held on September 13, 2013.
