After a construction period of four years, teaching began in the new university building of the Anton Bruckner Private University at the beginning of the winter semester 2015. The new building, planned and designed by the Linz architectural bureau 1 ZT, unites all the departments of the university under one roof. The total available area is about 25% larger than before.
The new building is an organically-shaped structure on three floors, with two additional basement floors. The teaching rooms for around 850 students and 220 teachers are distributed between all the floors, while the ground floor houses four concert / theatre spaces for a total of 600 visitiors. On the first of the basement floors is the underground car park with room for 131 vehicles. On the south side of the building a spacious park surrounds the campus – this, together with the Bistro Frédéric, is open to the public.
The new university building was erected on the site of the former Hagen Castle at the foot of the Pöstlingberg in Linz-Urfahr by the regional government of Upper Austria via the Bruckner-Universität Errichtungs- und Betriebsgesellschaft mbH (BEG), a subsidiary of the Landes-Immobilien GmbH (LIG). The department Gebäude- und Beschaffungs-Management (GBM) of the regional government was responsible for the construction management and supervision.
