An investment in the heart of EBS University

New construction, refurbishment and renovation measures on the campus Schloss in the Rheingau region.

The renovation, redevelopment and new construction measures on the Schloss Campus pursue the vision of a green, car-free campus where we invite our students, employees and guests to dwell.

Campus Schloss

Construction and renovation measures

One thing we would like to say in advance: The location will change fundamentally! New buildings are being constructed that will create more space for teaching and continuing education. A redesign of the park with grapevines and seating areas will continue to bring the Rheingau flair to the campus, and the Schloss and outbuildings will also be restructured and modernized in their entirety. Completion of the entire construction project is scheduled for 2025.

The existing buildings of the Schloss (bottom right), Walther-Leisler-Kiep Center (center left) and the annex with tower (top right) have been supplemented by the Forum (in the inner courtyard of the Schloss) since the end of 2021. In January 2022, the second construction phase began with the renovation of the annex building. A multifunctional building, including a canteen, will be constructed, the Learning Center in the Walther-Leisler-Kiep Center will be remodeled, and the Schloss will be renovated. The entire construction work is scheduled for completion at the end of 2025.

Campus Schloss


For a while, it looked pretty bleak on our campus. To create a retention area for flood protection, we removed the vineyard temporarily and was replanted with vines and extended by the Winery Balthasar Ress in spring 2021.
Further, we reduced the gravel area in front of the Walther-Leisler-Kiep Center. Also, a grass parterre with matching benches will be created, inviting students to come together.

The foundation for our new building is laid.
