One of focus points of campus development currently is improving the outdoor areas. In addition to pedestrian ways, the aim is to also improve, for example, the versatility, accessability, comfort, lighting on campus, and sustainable design solutions. Once the projects are completed, the campus outdoor areas will also better support experimental student activities, environmental art and holding events.
