The Johanneum is one of two theological convicts of the Rottenburg-Stuttgart diocese in Tübingen . It was founded in 1935 because a year earlier, over 75 new students were enrolled at Wilhelmsstift for the first time and there were not enough rooms available. Originally founded as a theological convict for basic studies, it has housed the theological-propaedeutic seminar Ambrosianum since 2008 . The new building from 2012 received the Baden-Württemberg State Building Culture Award.
