Main Campus Schneidershof

Multiple study options in a historic setting

High on the picturesque banks of the Moselle River and overlooking the historic city of Trier, the biggest campus of Trier University of Applied Sciences, the Main Campus Schneidershof, is situated.

Its buildings, which partly stand out as sites of historic interest, contain the university’s main administrative and service facilities, such as the library, the careers service, the international office, and the student administration office. A great variety of (dual) Bachelor and Master degrees can be obtained on this campus, which comprises the departments Computer Science, Architecture, Business, as well as Engineering and Technology. Its oval shape signifies the close interdisciplinary exchange benefitting the university‘s numerous cooperation partners and research projects.


Innovative teaching and research projects

Due to the high degree of practice orientation with which research and teaching at Trier University of Applied Sciences are conducted, a multitude of laboratories and workshops are spread across the campus. Most noticeable based on its size and shape is the machine hall – a facility not every university can boast. Students draw immediate profit from their hands-on studies of modern machinery and their constructing and testing of machine components.
Trier University of Applied Sciences is gearing up for the future and is constantly in motion – more than 5.000 students on the main campus make sure of its vibrancy. Furthermore, huge investments in the modernisation of the faculty buildings, the lecture halls, and the outdoor facilities ensure excellent conditions for academic study and research.


More than education: lifestyle on the Main Campus

Student life at Trier University of Applied Sciences means more than just seminars, lectures, and examinations. The sports fields in the centre of the Main Campus, various chill-out areas, a barbecue station, and a cafeteria invite students and researchers to enjoy their breaks on the grounds and to participate in campus activities. Relaxation in nature, climbing adventures in the high rope course, running, and picnicking - the recreation area Weißhauswald in close proximity to the campus offers a multitude of leisure activities. On the campus' other side, the river Moselle beckons with a wide range of recreational options – from rowing in the university's own team to cycling and diverse cultural and gastronomic events at the nearby Moselle embankment ‘Zurlaubener Ufer’.
