Main Building

The Main Building is the representative seat of the university on the avenue “Unter den Linden” (street address Unter den Linden 6). As an integral part of Berlin's city centre, it draws many visitors every year. Originally the building was constructed as the Palais of Prince Heinrich but was donated to the newly founded university in 1809/10.

The building has two entrances, one main entrance via Unter den Linden, the other via the courtyard from Dorotheenstraße. The conference participants will find here:

Ground floor:      Canteen

First floor:           Conference Office
                           “Senatssaal” and “Auditorium Maximum” for the welcome and farewell events

You find the Conference Office opposite of the Auditorium Maximum. Here you can register, receive your conference documents and obtain any information around this year’s IFSA. You also find help if you experience any difficulties. The conference office opens each day (Tuesday-Friday) 30 minutes before the symposium activities start and closes 30 minutes afterwards.
