Assessing the accessibility of the University’s buildings and lecture halls is an extensive undertaking.

This page provides directions to the University, a list of quiet rooms, accessible toilets, and a link to a brief overview of the accessibility of lecture halls.  Additionally, individual buildings are listed with links to their own pages, where individual lecture halls are described in detail.  We have included information about technical equipment, rolling capability, the shortest and most accessible routes, and seats for the hearing and visually impaired. Photos are included with all information.

If you notice that the information has changed or if lecture halls are missing, please let us know. We are happy to receive feedback, corrections, and additions.
Please send us an email or call us. Our contact information is on the right hand side of the page.

Directions | How to reach TU Berlin


Because the Ernst-Reuter-Platz subway station does not yet have any elevators, wheelchair users can most easily access the University from S-Bahnhof Tiergarten, which does have an elevator. Accessible buses (X9, M45, and 245) also depart from Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten (also wheelchair-accessible) stopping at Ernst-Reuter-Platz.

For current timetables, please refer to www.bvg.de and go to “Travel information” and then “Accessible search”. We recommend checking beforehand whether any elevators are out of service, for example using the page brokenlifts (a project which aggregates information from VBB, DB, and BVG).

Parking at TU Berlin

Accessible toilets

At present there are 57 accessible toilets in 31 buildings at the University. 8 are located in the MAR building, 7 in the Main Building, and 5 in the Volkswagen Library. In 10 buildings, restrooms are outfitted with the EURO lock and key system, which will soon be installed in a further 5 buildings. In 14 buildings, the restrooms are accessible without a key.

You can find a detailed summary in the document List of accessible restrooms at TU Berlin and their locking systems.
