50 Reasons WHY

50 sites, which have the university in them

WHY is the university interwoven with the city of Bremen? Find out WHY at more than 50 marked sites. We show you where researchers, teachers and students are an important part of the economy, politics, public administration, education, and culture – and where ideas and collaborations from the university have brought about something new. We will also present to you locations where graduates astonish others with impressive positions of employment.

 

From October (October 15 to November 07, 2021), an exhibition in the Lower Hall of Bremen Town Hall will bring together all the sites.
The exhibition is opened Wednesdays to Sundays in the time from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm.

The Sites:

In the campus park of the University of Bremen are the letters W A R U M (WHY). A tram is just turning the corner, the building MZH can be seen in the background.
