In 2012, a Room of Silence has been established for all members and guests of the University of Bremen. It serves as a space of peace, meditation and prayer and invites you to take a moment for yourself. The Room of Silence is open to all who wish to use it in this sense - regardless of their worldview and religious affiliation. The users* are united by a respectful and tolerant way of dealing with one another. The former Vice Chancellor for Interculturality and Internationality, Yasemin Karakaşoğlu, emphasised in her opening speech:
"The Room of Silence is an offer to all those who wish to withdraw from the often hectic everyday life at the university. [...] The concept [...] is to express the recognition of diversity lived on campus."
The Room of Silence is located in GW2, B1800 and is open from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m..
Reservations for the shared use of the room by groups are coordinated by Diversity Management.
For group allocation, please contact Nele Kuhn.
