Campus Ignaz Schön, Ignaz-Schön-Straße 11, 97421 Schweinfurt (rooms starting with 1-8)
(former Campus I)
After completion of the construction work at former Campus I in Schweinfurt, a new layout plan of Campus I was created:
What is there?
THWS administration, Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences and Humanities (FANG), Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FE), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FM), Faculty of Business and Engineering (FWI), several labs, student representation and others.
Arriving at Schweinfurt Main Station, you can either take the “Campus Express” bus; during the lecture period (Monday to Friday) it departs every 20 minutes; first/last departure: 7:44/19:15; bus stop for THWS: “Richard-Wagner-Straße/Campus 1”
Or you take bus 11 or 12 until their last stop “Roßmarkt” and change into bus 22 or 24 “Bellevue”. The bus stop for THWS would then again be Richard-Wagner-Straße/Campus 1. The THWS main building is just opposite the street.

Around Campus Ignaz Schön, parking is possible along the street and in the side streets. There are four wheelchair-accessible parking spaces on the grounds of THWS; access is possible without a barrier via Fritz-Drescher-Straße, 97421 Schweinfurt.

Partly, the steps are protected against slipping by steel edges, but do not have any marking or additional tactile features.

For orientation within THWS buildings in Schweinfurt, a consistent system of room numbers is used. The first number designates the building. The following number designates the floor number or level. After that, the actual room number is given. Example: 1.E.01 = (Campus 1) Ignaz-Schön-Straße. Ground level. Room 1. Buildings 1-8, 11 and 12 are on Campus Ignaz Schön in Ignaz-Schön-Straße 11, 97421 Schweinfurt. Building 9 is mainly called Campus Konrad Geiger and is located in Konrad-Geiger-Straße 2, 97421 Schweinfurt. Building 10 is located in Landwehrstraße 46, 97421 Schweinfurt. The seminar rooms in Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 4, 97421 Schweinfurt, are in Building 13. Room designation in THWS buildings in Würzburg differs from that, because there letters are used to designate buildings.
At all important locations, escape and rescue plans are displayed. They make an overview of parts of the building possible. In addition, site plans and information about construction works are displayed at central locations.
On Campus Ignaz Schön, room marking is consistent. Boards mounted on the wall state the room number and the room’s use. At seminar, meeting, and lecture rooms, ongoing and upcoming courses are shown on rather small digital screens.
