Centrally located, the Villa Tillmanns offers a place where early career researchers at our university can meet, network and research.

Until further notice, and probably until the end of 2020, we are not taking any room requests for the seminar rooms of Villa Tillmanns due to the corona regulations of Leipzig University and upcoming window renovations on the ground floor.

A Place for Early Career Researchers

The villa at Wächterstraße 30 was built in 1898 by the paediatric surgeon Dr Robert Hermann Tillmanns as a residence for his family. It is centrally located next to the Federal Administrative Court and within walking distance of Leipzig city centre. The Biliotheca Albertina, the Geisteswissenschaftliche Zentrum (Humanities centre, GWZ) and the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Leipzig are in the immediate vicinity.

The first floor is home to the university’s Leipzig Labs, and the second floor houses the offices of the Research Academy Leipzig. The Villa also provides space for the PhD Candidate’s Council of Leipzig University as well as an office for the current Leibniz Professor.

The ground floor offers fully equipped rooms that can be used for workshops, symposia and conferences.

Use of Our Seminar Rooms

Leipzig University members can submit a request to use the seminar rooms on the ground floor of Villa Tillmanns for academic purposes. Priority will be given to events organised by early career researchers and to those intended for this target group. The use of the rooms is free of charge.

We are happy to provide you with information regarding the capacity of and equipment in our seminar rooms as well as information about the room allocation policy. Simply contact us by phone or email. Please include the date, type of event, target group and expected number of people who will be attending the event so that we can answer your enquiry as quickly and accurately as possible. Note: do not send requests more than six months before the event is scheduled to take place.
