COS Heidelberg buildingsIm Neuenheimer Feld 230
The six-storey building „Im Neuenheimer Feld 230“ houses the majority of COS research groups, the Nikon Imaging Center and most of our teaching facilities and function rooms.
The building, originating from the sixties, has undergone extensive remodelling and refurbishment in recent years which, on the ground floor and in the basement, are still not finished. Especially our teaching rooms are still affected by limitations caused by reconstruction work. The majority of laboratories and research facilities are already in full brand-new working state, though.

Directions and parking
Turn left from Berliner Straße into the second street after Ernst-Walz-Brücke (“Im Neuenheimer Feld”), turn right, parking is possible in the “Mathematikon” basement parking garage (parking fees), across the street from building INF 230.
Use bus line 31 or 29 (from old town), tram lines 21 or 24 (from main station) to stop “Bunsengymnasium” or bus line 32 to "Jahnstraße". The building is in easy walking distance from there (approx. 3 resp. 10 min).
