The University of Siegen is a university in Siegen . It emerged from the University of Siegen. Research focuses on cultural and social media research as well as basic and application-oriented research in the field of sensor technology and nanosciences. The motto is "Shaping the future humanely".

As in previous years, almost 20,000 students were enrolled in the 2018/2019 winter semester, compared with over 12,000 ten years earlier. To this end, the university recently employed 258 professors and 1,160 scientific staff as well as 794 employees in technology and administration. It offers over 50 courses in five faculties.


Schematic representation of the story

In 1536 the sovereign, Count Wilhelm der Reiche von Nassau , entrusted the Saxon pedagogue and theologian Erasmus Sarcerius with the construction of a Latin school , today's high school at Löhrtor . In the years 1595 to 1599/1600 and again from 1606 to 1609, the Calvinist-Reformed High School Johannea, founded in Herborn in 1584, was moved from Herborn to Siegen and housed in buildings at the Lower Castle.

Meadow Building School

Memorial on the Paul-Bonatz-Campus for the director of the meadow construction school, Louis Ernst

In 1853 the meadow construction school , which is well known beyond the state's borders, was founded. She dealt with the meadow construction and the meadow improvement . By means of suitable irrigation and drainage of the meadows, yields of agricultural land should be optimized. Such an optimization was particularly necessary in the Siegerland, because due to the large demand for charcoal in the surrounding ironworks, most of the usable areas were forests. The forests severely restricted the areas suitable for cattle breeding, which is why research had to be carried out on ways to improve the yield of the scarce meadows.

The focus of the training shifted towards civil engineering after the Second World War , for this reason the Wiesenbauschule was renamed the State Engineering School for Civil Engineering in 1962 .

The first younger academic institution in Siegen (at that time located in Weidenau / Hüttental) took place when the Siegerland University of Education was founded in 1964. When it was assigned to the Westphalia-Lippe University of Education in 1965 as the Siegerland department, it became a scientific university transformed.

On August 1, 1971, the technical schools State Engineering School for Construction , State Engineering School for Mechanical Engineering Siegen , State Higher Business School Siegen , State Engineering School for Mechanical Engineering Gummersbach and the Higher Technical School for Social Pedagogy in Siegen were incorporated into the newly established University of Applied Sciences in Siegen with departments Gummersbach and Siegen transferred.

On August 1, 1972, the comprehensive university with headquarters in Siegen / Hüttental was founded together with four other comprehensive universities in North Rhine-Westphalia by the comprehensive university development law. Construction began on the building complex in Weidenau on November 8, 1972. The Siegerland University of Education and the Siegen-Gummersbach University of Applied Sciences with their Siegen and Gummersbach departments were incorporated into the Siegen University.

In the founding phase, Siegen University had around 200 professors and almost 4,000 students. Four interdisciplinary internal research focuses were formed: Historical mobility and change in norms, mass media and communication, material science / material technology and computer-aided measurement and control processes. The founding rector included the economist Professor Artur Woll , Honorary Professor (Zhongnan University Wuhan).

In 1980 the Siegen comprehensive university was given the addition of the university-comprehensive university . The Gummersbach location was spun off to the Cologne University of Applied Sciences on June 1, 1983 . The learners studied a. a. according to the Y-model established in North Rhine-Westphalia, in which the basic course up to the intermediate diploma was largely completed together in order to then obtain diploma I or II in the main course. Diploma 1 comprised a standard period of study of 6 + 1 semester and corresponded to a degree from a technical school, Diploma 2 with 8 + 1 semester ended with a university degree.

1990 to 2010

In 1996 the University of Siegen became the first German university to take part in the “Institutional Quality Audit Program” of the European Rectors' Conference (CRE) and successively implemented the recommendations of the auditors. The University of Siegen sees itself as a modern university. Modern basic research, job-related training and their contribution to structural change in the Siegen-Wittgenstein district and the neighboring regions are of particular importance to them.

In line with the political objectives that led to the establishment of the comprehensive universities, it stands for democratization, equal opportunities, permeability of professional and academic education and internationality. The reform requirement of the comprehensive university was realized through the integrated courses. Innovative, integrated diploma courses such as "Media Planning, Development and Consulting" and "German and European Business Law" were created.

On January 1, 2003, the state legislature abandoned the form of comprehensive university and the existing universities-comprehensive universities were converted into universities. Since then, the university has been called the University of Siegen . From around 200 when it was founded, the number of professors rose to around 280 by 1998. It then fell again, over around 250 in 2005 to slightly below 200 in 2007. The university lost 96 jobs between 1990 and 2008 as a result of government cuts.

As part of the implementation of the Bologna Process, the introduction of Bachelor and Master courses was initiated relatively early with the aim of establishing such consecutive courses in all departments by the beginning of the 2006/07 winter semester. The last four remaining diploma courses were converted to Bachelor / Master in the 2008/09 winter semester. The aim is to further promote the internationalization of the course through better comparability of academic achievements. To this end, modern language training with specializations and international partnerships was introduced or expanded.

From 2010

Under Rector Holger Burckhart , who took office on October 1, 2009 with a reform concept, the university was structured in a new way. With effect from January 1, 2011, twelve departments became four thematically structured faculties. With the reorganization, the rectorate intended to strengthen international competitiveness. a. by optimizing interdisciplinary research and collaboration and making better use of human and material resources.

At the beginning of 2016, the university administration moved from the old Siegen tax office in the city center on Herrengarten to a new building on the Adolf-Reichwein-Straße campus. Between 2017 and 2019, parts of the Adolf Reichwein campus (including the main library and the cafeteria) were renovated and modernized with funds from the university building consolidation program of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The university is increasingly committed to the involvement of alumni and holds alumni days at regular intervals .


Campus Adolf-Reichwein-Str.

The university is divided into faculties as well as scientific institutions and central operating units. It is headed by a rectorate headed by a rector. The Rectorate is controlled by the Senate, which consists of elected representatives of the university lecturers, academic and non-academic staff and students. A university council, at least 50% of which is made up of external persons, may take over a. the function of providing scientific advice to the university management.


There are five faculties at the University of Siegen. For the 2018/2019 winter semester, 45 specialist courses were offered as well as 1 study concept with 3 study models and 9 teacher training courses in the Philosophical Faculty.

The ZIMT emerged from the previous institutions HRZ (university computer center) and MZ (media center) of the University of Siegen.


Development of the number of students and professors


Emmy Noether Campus

Around 19,000 students are enrolled at the university (as of: WS 2015/16). Since it was originally only designed for 8,200 apprentices, it suffered from a certain lack of space, especially in the late 1980s and early 1990s, which was alleviated by relocating the administration to the Herrengarten and thus gaining the AVZ building in Hölderlinstrasse. At the peak of the 1990s, the university had over 13,250 students; after declines in the meantime, the number has increased again since the beginning of 2000. The reason for the very variable number of students was, among other things, the fact that the University of Siegen acted as an overflow basin for the heavily overcrowded universities in Cologne, Bonn and Dortmund for certain courses that were subject to a numerus clausus . In times of high demand, the number of students in these courses rose particularly sharply in Siegen. In the winter semester 1988/89, z. B. over 600 instead of the approx. 300 expected students for the mechanical engineering department.

Since the establishment of the Bachelor's / Master's degree programs in 2008, the number of students has initially declined slightly. This was justified with the timely completion of the shorter Bachelor courses and the lower demand for the subsequent Master courses at the University of Siegen. In the winter semester 2009/10, however, around 2,800 new students enrolled, 600 more than in the previous year. This trend continued in the following years, so that a total of 14,061 students were enrolled in the 2010/2011 winter semester and around 15,500 students at the beginning of the 2011/2012 winter semester. For the 2011/12 winter semester, a total of over 21,000 applicants applied for restricted-admission courses, of which around 3,400 were able to enroll. For the double Abitur class of 2013, among other things, 4,900 new study places were created, additional staff hired, rooms rented and a new bus concept established.

About 50% of the students are female. Around 12% of the students come from abroad. In the years 2002 to 2007 there were an average of 1,300 graduates, 77 doctorates (24% by women) and 6 habilitations per year.

Composed student body

The student body is divided into 11 student councils. In addition to the individual student councils of the former departments 5–12, there are three student representatives AES / ISPA / BASA (social work / pedagogy), GHR (primary, secondary and secondary school teachers) and 1 (2) –4 (secondary and vocational school teachers, Magister, Bachelor and Master courses).

The interests of the students are represented by a general student committee (AStA), which is elected by the student parliament. From the 1990s to 2005, the AStA was largely supported by the left-wing merger of the DLL, UL-AES and UIL lists. Since 2006 it has been dominated by the Juso University Group. In February 2015, the AStA decided to rename student bodies after the doctor von Buchenwald and Walter Krämer, who was born in Siegen .

Semester ticket

Since 1993 the student body has had a semester ticket in the form of the solidarity model. The area of ​​validity extends to public transport in the area of ​​the VGWS , and in some cases even beyond that in rail transport. With the beginning of the summer semester 2008 the area of ​​validity was extended to the whole of North Rhine-Westphalia (“NRW-Ticket”). The price per semester included in the semester fee is 138.70 euros in the 2016 summer semester. The fee consists of a basic fee of 89.60 euros, 48.10 euros to extend the area of ​​validity to the whole of North Rhine-Westphalia and one euro to finance cases of social hardship . In the early years, the ticket was mandatory for all students.

Golden Monaco

The Golden Monaco , named after film scholar James Monaco , is the university's student film award. Every year students organize this for their fellow students . All students of the University of Siegen can submit their films, a jury of media representatives then selects the winners in several categories at a large gala.

Tuition and semester fee

Main building of the campus Hölderlinstr.

Tuition fee

On February 24, 2011, the Düsseldorf state parliament decided to abolish tuition fees. From the winter semester 2011/2012, tuition fees will no longer be charged in North Rhine-Westphalia and thus also at the University of Siegen.

Since the winter semester 2006/07, the University of Siegen has been charging general tuition fees of 500 euros for all enrolled students since the summer semester 2007 . The contribution statutes, which were passed in camera by the university's senate in July 2006, had to be resolved again in June 2007 after a ruling by the Arnsberg Administrative Court , since the vote at that time should not have taken place without further notice.

The earmarked income had to be used to improve teaching and study conditions. The opening times of the library were extended through tuition fees, PC user workstations in the library were equipped with flat screens and the Siegen Competence Center (KoSi) was created, which offers PC and language courses for students, among other things. In addition, smaller exercise groups can be offered by employing additional academic staff. The student representatives criticize the fact that tuition fees are used to fill budget holes. In some cases, student assistants for tutorials were no longer paid from budget funds, but from tuition fees. The rectorate replied that tuition fees did not fill the budget and “in no case a position that was lost due to the cancellation of a position was replaced by a position financed by tuition fees”. The funds would be used to tackle problems caused by insufficient funding, including the recruitment of professors or the financing of student assistants in overcrowded departments.

Income from tuition fees in the 2008 budget year was around 6.5 million euros.

Semester fee

The semester fee, which is to be distinguished from tuition fees, is 250.80 euros (as of: summer semester 2017). It consists of the student body fee (10.00 euros), the mobility fee (150.30 euros) and the social contribution to be paid to the Studentenwerk (90.50 euros).


Campus signpost

The university has several campus locations in the city area. Its buildings are spread over four core areas (Haardter Berg, Unteres Schloss, Herrengarten and Emmy-Noether-Campus ).


Paul Bonatz Campus

Most of the university is located in the Weidenau district. The connected area on the Haardter Berg includes the Adolf-Reichwein-Straße campus on the one hand. There you will find the large lecture halls of the university, the central canteen , the central student advisory service, the headquarters of the Siegen University Library , the International Student Affairs department, the university administration and part of the center for information and media technology. The Hölderlinstrasse campus with the center for information and media technology and the Hölderlinstrasse branch library and the student union is located around 500 m south-east . Another 400 m south on Paul-Bonatz-Straße is the engineering science campus, which emerged from the buildings of the former engineering school. The Artur-Woll-Haus on the eastern slope of the Haardter Berg, which opened on March 25, 2003, houses the guest house of the university and third-party research institutions.

The Emmy-Noether-Campus is located on the Fischbacherberg, about 5 km southwest of Haardter Berg. The departments of mathematics and physics have been located there since 1999 . In the building of the former Jung-Stilling hospital there was last a military administration school .

One kilometer west of Haardter Berg on the border between the districts of Weidenau and Geisweid is the old brewery, in which the art division has its headquarters. The art students do practical work here, such as painting and photography, and exhibitions are held regularly.

Main building, Lower Castle campus

The Unteres Schloss campus is located in downtown Siegen. It consists of the historic Lower Castle , which was moved into in the summer semester of 2016, and the adjoining former district clinic on Kohlbettstrasse (moved into the winter semester of 2014/15). The campus is home to Faculty III and the Lower Castle branch library. A realization of lecture halls in the Karstadt building directly adjacent to the Lower Castle is planned (status: January 2016) .


Artur Woll House

With the Artur-Woll-Haus, the Dutch architectural office rau architecten created an architecturally extraordinary building. In addition to an arched central unit, it consists of three wings that resemble a ship's bow. The construction costs amount to around 8.6 million euros.

The university was planned with other universities in North Rhine-Westphalia, so that a similar architectural style and partly the same building modules can be found at the universities of Duisburg-Essen , Paderborn and Wuppertal .


Third-party funding: income, expenditure, grants

The university has a wide range of research activities. The main focus areas are interdisciplinary media research and comparative social research, inclusion, medium-sized businesses, media and logistics, the optimization of construction materials and systems through innovative materials and production technology, automotive, visualization and sensor technology, as well as matter and universe with the highest energies.

The third-party funding amounted to 19.92 million euros in 2009, the income to 21.36 million euros.

Ranking over teaching

In the 1999 nationwide university ranking by the news magazine Der Spiegel, the courses in pedagogy, German, English and mechanical engineering, as well as the university, are in the top group in the overall ranking. In contrast to research rankings , which usually evaluate the number of publications and citations in scientific literature , the results of the Spiegel ranking are based on a representative survey of students carried out by the Emnid Institute on the quality of education, study conditions, equipment and student satisfaction. Small study groups and good contact with professors are particularly emphasized in Siegen. As early as 1989, Der Spiegel had a ranking carried out under the same criteria, in which the University of Siegen performed similarly to the new 1999 edition. The economics and social sciences were reassessed in 2011 in the university ranking of the Center for University Development (CHE). The University of Siegen achieved good results, especially in economics: the course offers students a very good international orientation.

Research ranking

The University of Siegen and its faculties participate in the CHE research ranking. For various reasons, however, the former departments 2, 3, 8 and 12 have been eliminated from the ranking.

Cafeteria ranking

In the vote for the canteen of the year by the campus magazine Unicum, the central canteen of the Siegen student union performed very well at the state and federal level several times.
