Ball sports hall will open on 3 April

The freshly renovated ball sports hall on the Treskowallee campus will open its doors at the beginning of the summer semester. Ball sports such as badminton, futsal and volleyball will be once again available. The hall was used as an emergency shelter from November 2015 to October 2016. The refugees from countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan have since been relocated to community accommodation in Hellersdorf and Prenzlauer Berg.

Stories of fleeing from conflict and arriving in Berlin

Students on the Business Communication Management study programme started two blogs dealing with the topics of "fleeing from conflict" and "arriving in Berlin" this last semester: WIR sind DIE and NO BORDERS. The blogs recount the stories of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan and the people in Berlin who have helped them to adjust to life in Germany. The blogs were created independently from each other as part of two project seminars.
