Incidental parking is only allowed after the head of the Facilitary Service has given permission.

In front of the building students can find an bicycle rack. Using the locked bicycle garage in the basement involves a down payment, which can be paid at the Facilitary Service. It is not allowed to park bicycles in or around the academy.

    Call the reception at 070-3154700 or dial internal line 9.
    Report who you are and where you are. The reception will immediately notify the Emergency response team (BHV team).
    If you know how to use the manual fire extinguisher, try to put out the fire (only in case of small/beginning fire incidents).
