Campus life

Facilities at our Campus

The faculty is located in the charming countryside of Salzgitter-Calbecht in the former headquarters of the Salzgitter Erzbergbau AG (Salzgitter Ore Mining Company), which underwent complete renovation in the nineties. We have more than 2300 students at this campus.

We also offer study rooms and recreational rooms, where every student can study or work on their projects. Furthermore we have a newly renovated canteen which provides freshly cooked meals. In addition, the faculty in Salzgitter provides two kiosks offering a selection of snacks and beverages.

A well-equipped fitness room offers the students a place to exercise and gives them the opportunity to finish their day by winding down physically and mentally.


The students have the opportunity to participate in different sports at Ostfalia. They can choose among a variety of sports and other free time activities, for instance soccer, handball, basketball, table tennis, dancing and fitness. As a result of the collaboration between Ostfalia and the Brunswick technical university, students can do sports both at our faculties and at the university.

IT Infrastructure

Our excellent IT infrastructure includes quality equipment with PC terminals for students, WLAN access and notebook consultation. Our online portal provides access to specialist electronic information along with an online learning management system with registration for exams, student access to grades and matriculation for the following semester.


We have a full scope of library and computer lab services available at every Ostfalia site. Our library has a wide selection of specialist scientific literature available. We also provide the major specialist periodicals together with full versions of electronic magazines. Any missing literature can be made available by remote lending or document supply services; we welcome suggestions for further procurement via the Internet.
