Model of the campus of the University of Bayreuth


Even a medium-sized campus university with around 13,500 students needs to be well organised. An overview of our organizational structure.

The University is controlled by its central bodies: The University Governing Board, the Senate, and the University Council. Furthermore, the Faculties are central pillars of the University. They are led by the Dean's Office and the Faculty Council. The Dean's Office implements the decisions of the Faculty Council and conducts the day-to-day business of the faculty.

The University Governing Board and faculties are supported by other advisory bodies, by the Board of Trustees and, of course, by the central facilities such as the library or the IT Service Centre.
