The University of Bayreuth is one of the youngest universities in Germany . Since it opened in 1975, the research-oriented campus university with its seven faculties has developed dynamically.


“Postei” in Friedrichstrasse , building of the former Academia Fridericiana
Royal Teachers Training Institute, 1895

The margravial Academia Fridericiana (Friedrichsakademie), which existed in Bayreuth from 1742 to 1743 and was given the status of a university by Charles VII on February 21, 1743 , has no historical connection with today's University of Bayreuth. Rather, it was the short-lived forerunner of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg .

Teacher training and University of Education Bayreuth

At the eastern end of the district of Dürschnitz , the "Royal Teacher Training Institute" was opened in 1895. It was initially used to train Protestant primary school teachers. The teacher training college became the college for teacher training in 1935 , and in 1941 it became a teacher training institution without a high school diploma. After the war, the Abitur was again required for the continuing teacher training institute, now sponsored by the Evangelical Church.

In 1954, the Institute for Teacher Training was established, which in 1958 was upgraded to the Bayreuth University of Education without religious orientation and affiliated to the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg , since 1964 at the new location at Roter Hügel . Since 1972 the PH Bayreuth was dissolved and the "Second Faculty of Education" from Erlangen-Nuremberg. On October 1, 1975, it was transferred to the newly founded University of Bayreuth. On October 1, 1977, the Faculty of Education was dissolved.

Foundation of the university

On November 5, 1969, the Bayreuth city council dealt with the economic stagnation and emigration tendencies in northeast Bavaria as a result of its location near the borders with the GDR and Czechoslovakia . In order to initiate an effective structural improvement that would guarantee living conditions of equal quality with the rest of the country, various measures were required. In this context, he unanimously applied for the establishment of a university in the city. On March 19, 1970, a university association was launched, the number of members quickly growing to 800. In addition to Bayreuth, Bamberg , Coburg , Landshut , Passau and Ingolstadt also applied as locations for a university or college.

Members of all parties represented in the Bavarian state parliament, the Upper Franconian District Parliament and numerous public figures campaigned for the building of the university. Special mention should be made of Konrad Pöhner and Simon Nüssel as well as the Mayor of Bayreuth Hans Walter Wild , who showed great negotiating skills. As early as July 16, 1970, a state parliament resolution was reached according to which the next Bavarian state university should be located in Bayreuth. In 1971, the Science Council recommended that the university be included in the measures under the University Building Promotion Act . A structural advisory board was formed under the chairmanship of the physicist Wolfgang Wild , which expected the number of 8500 study places and 3200 employees in 1985.

The university was founded by the Bavarian State Parliament on January 1, 1972 as the seventh Bavarian state university. The state parliament decision was celebrated on December 14, 1971 in the city with a torchlight procession. Instead of the Wendelhöfen and Roter Hügel locations that were also being considered, the site of the former parade ground south of the Kreuzstein and Birken districts was chosen. The office of the University of Bayreuth began its work in 1972, initially in the House of German Shorthand (“Stenohaus”) on Luitpoldplatz, which was built by the National Socialists. Founding President Klaus Dieter Wolff took office in October 1973 . The foundation stone was laid on March 23, 1974, and on November 27, 1975, Minister of Culture Hans Maier opened the University of Bayreuth with a state ceremony in the Margravial Opera House with a focus on natural sciences.

Development since 1975

She started research and teaching in the 1975/76 winter semester with 637 students, 24 professors and one professor. Initially, the diploma courses in biology and mathematics were offered, as well as teaching positions for elementary and secondary schools and teaching positions for grammar schools (subjects mathematics, physics and sport). The former University of Education was initially incorporated into the university as an educational science faculty. It was dissolved in the 1977/78 winter semester and the didactic subjects were integrated into the faculties of the respective disciplines. Primary school teacher training was offered in Bayreuth up to 2005 in addition to diploma and master’s courses and courses for teaching positions at secondary schools. The courses for teaching positions at grammar schools and secondary schools were retained.

The first building on campus was the Geosciences I building west of the “Birkengut” farm, completed in 1975, which was initially used by the university, but was demolished in 1994 after a fire. The Geosciences II building was added in 1977, and Natural Sciences II was built from 1980 to 1983. In 1988 the university library, which until then had been housed in a temporary facility, was inaugurated and the foundation of the Humanities II building, which cost 8.6 million DM, was concreted. On January 5th of that year, the physicists Frank Pobell , Kurt Gloos and Peter Smeibidl set a new record for low temperatures after a four-year preparation period. In 1994 the university administration was moved from Kanalstrasse in the city center (former “Steno-Haus”) to the campus. In the same year the Auditorium Maximum with a capacity of 700 seats was completed, in 1999 the building for the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAN), founded in 1998.

On the basis of the recommendations of your structural advisory board, areas of focus and courses with a special interdisciplinary focus were determined:

  • Focus on "Experimental Ecology"
  • Focus on "Macromolecular Chemistry"
  • Focus on "Africanology"
  • Research Institute for Music Theater (fimt)
  • "Technical Physicist" course
  • "Business Law" course.

In addition to the focus, it was the “interface philosophy” that proved to be particularly effective for the further development of the university. It includes carrying out seminal scientific teaching and research at the points of contact and intersection of different disciplines. On this basis, interdisciplinarity in almost all areas was a particularly typical feature of Bayreuth from the start.

In connection with the expansion of the ecological focus, the University of Bayreuth was able to start setting up a large-scale ecological-botanical garden to support research and teaching shortly after the start of operations , in which vegetation types from all over the world were to be reproduced and profile-relevant research activities were to be made possible. At the same time, the concept encompassed the novel aspect of the public and the recreational value for the region.

In the summer of 1977, the Research Institute for Music Theater in Thurnau Castle began its work. On November 27, 1981, the “ Iwalewahaus ” Africa Center was opened in the building of the former margravial mint .

The first graduate college was set up in Bavaria in 1987 under the name “Plant Herbivore Systems” .

At the end of the decade, the university significantly expanded its profile by expanding its four main research areas to nine and introducing the bachelor's and master's system in the 1999/2000 winter semester as part of the European course reforms ( Bologna process ). The priorities were reformulated as follows:

  • Africanology
  • Dynamism and order: development of legal culture and economy
  • High pressure and high temperature research
  • Comparison of cultures and intercultural processes
  • Macromolecule and Colloid Research
  • Molecular Life Sciences
  • New materials
  • Nonlinear Dynamics
  • Ecological and environmental sciences.

The increasing scientific competition has recently shown itself, among other things, in the emerging standards and certifications in the area of accreditations and rankings . Allocations of third-party funds became more and more important and made it possible to expand research and study opportunities through new institutions and types of institutions as well as through more extensive global networking.

The current profile is characterized by a differentiation into internationally visible research fields, which are characterized by a high degree of thematic and programmatic coherence ("Advanced Fields"), and into new interdisciplinary research priorities, which are in the early stages of a dynamic development identified as sustainable by responding to a virulent and socially relevant research need (“emerging fields”). The "Advanced Fields" consist of:

  • African Studies
  • High pressure and high temperature research
  • Polymer and Colloid Research
  • Ecology and environmental sciences
  • New materials
  • Molecular Life Sciences
  • Nonlinear Dynamics.

The "emerging fields" include:

  • Cultural encounters and transcultural processes
  • Innovation and consumer protection
  • Governance & Responsibility
  • Energy research and energy technology
  • Food and Health Sciences.

When it started teaching in 1975, the university was designed for up to 8,000 students in the final state. The number of 13,000 was exceeded in the 2014/15 winter semester. The continual growth was responded to with a personnel and infrastructure expansion.

In 2018 the proportion of international students was 9%, in 2019 it was 11%.

In September 2018, the Bavarian Minister of Science Marion Kiechle opened the Bavarian Center for Battery Technology (BayBatt) at the University of Bayreuth. It is to be set up within five years and in the final stage will include 114 positions, including 12 professorships.

University constitution

The University of Bayreuth has a basic structure , in the preamble of which the interdisciplinarity , internationality and the targeted setting of priorities are formulated as a model.

The 81.99 hectare campus is located in the south of Bayreuth, near the A 9 , exit Bayreuth-Süd (No. 42). Most of the university is located there; only a few facilities are located in other buildings in and around Bayreuth. Most of the student residences are located in the immediate vicinity of the campus.

Art and culture on campus

There are 32 publicly accessible works of art exhibited in the open air on campus (as of 2017). Among the best known are the “Great Space Curve” by Norbert Kricke , the rusty head across from the Audimax by Wolfgang Bier , the stainless steel work by Erich Hauser in the inner courtyard of Building NW II and the figures by Stephan Balkenhol distributed around the roundabout . A new addition in 2017 was Robert Kessler's two-mirror work “you are free”.

The Uni-Open-Air music festival has been held on the campus every year in early summer since 1988. The one-day event, which is organized by students, brings rock , indie rock and punk to a stage in the inner courtyard of the NW II building. Sportfreunde Stiller (2000), Tomte (2001), Robocop Kraus (2009) and Vierkanttretlager performed (2014).

A former greenhouse is the “Glashaus” venue, which is run by students and university staff on a voluntary basis. Since 1997 the non-profit association Glashaus eV has been the sponsor of the facility. In 2018, the glass house was awarded the Germany-wide applause program prize for outstanding live music programs.

Prominent alumni


University professor

For former and current professors at the University of Bayreuth see: Category: University professors (University of Bayreuth)

In 2016 there were 323 professorships at the university, 45 of which were occupied by women. At 52 percent, the proportion of women in language and literature studies is highest. In the field of cultural studies it is 33 percent, in the faculty of mathematics, physics and computer science it is 9.8 percent. In law and economics, it is 7 percent. The proportion of female professors is thus below the Bavarian average of 19 percent.

Graduate associations (alumni work)

In contrast to some other universities, alumni work at the university is not organized centrally (i.e. at the university-wide level and from the university management or administration), but decentralized. The existing alumni structures are based on initiatives by former students and are divided according to faculties, courses or areas of study. The following institutions are partly registered associations and partly less formal structures (networks):

  • BcG Alumni e. V. - Alumni Association of Biology, Biochemistry and Geosciences
  • CSG e. V. - Chemistry Graduate Association
  • Förderverein Philosophy & Economics eV - graduate and student network of the Philosophy & Economics course
  • AluMPI e. V. - Graduate Association of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science
  • RWalumni - Alumni Association of the Faculty of Law and Economics
  • sabig - students and alumni of Bayreuth Intercultural German Studies (institutionalized in 2008 as a working group of IIK Bayreuth e.V.)
  • Sports Economics Uni Bayreuth e. V. - Alumni Association of the Bayreuth Sports Economy

An international alumni work by a. in the field of interdisciplinary African studies and intercultural German studies has been funded by the German Academic Exchange Service since 2009. Representatives of the alumni organizations belong to an alumni forum that is headed by the Vice President for International Affairs and External Relations of the UBT.
