45 CAMPUS CAMPUS The campus of the TU Ilmenau belongs to the most beautiful in Germany, according to a survey of the student online portal UNICUM, and this is not only because of the idyllic panorama of the Thuringian Forest. The architecture of the first university buildings from 1894 is complemented today with the design of modern structures. Since almost all buildings are located on a 1,000 by 500 square meter large area, researchers and students have short walks between research and instruction buildings, between the 13 dormitories, the cafeteria, and the leisure facilities like the sports complex and student clubs. The Hans Stamm Campus is supplemented with a second smaller campus in the city center, the Georg Schmidt Technikum. Both university campuses are only a few minutes by foot from each other and are connected by a new pedestrian and bike bridge. Each research and teaching building has its own name in memory of famous scientists. The central teaching facility of the TU Ilmenau is the Humboldtbau, named after the universal scholar Wilhelm von Humboldt. In the Auditorium Maximum there are not only lectures and seminars, but also conventions, commemorative and cultural events. This building also boasts an additional auditorium and 12 seminar rooms, all equipped with the most modern technology. The youngest structure is the Zusebau, named after the inventor of the first computer. The 5,000 square meter floor space, the second largest structure of the university, provides the Department of Computer Science and Automation a home.
