"Free of barriers" (Barrierefreiheit) is the keyword in the law regulating the construction of public buildings. Unfortunately, many of the older buildings were not constructed according to this law. Information on buildings and facilities adjusted to the needs of disabled people is available through the information website of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
In Karlsruhe and in Pforzheim, the Studentenwerk offers a sufficient number of rooms and apartments which are "free of barriers". In our Wohnheim Klosterweg 7, all 72 rooms are wheelchair accessible. Our Wohnheim Willy-Andreas-Allee offers 4 rooms which are wheelchair accessible, too. You will also find an apartment with 4 single rooms in our Wohnheim Hagenschießstraße 1 and 3 in Pforzheim which is wheelchair accessible.
We encourage you to consult the homepage of the “Deutsches Studentenwerk“ for more information on studying with a disability.
Angelika Scherwitz-Gallegos, the representative for the concerns of disabled students at Karlsruhe Institut of Technologie (KIT), will be pleased to provide assistance, too. Visually impaired or blind persons are encouraged to contact the Studienzentrum für Sehgeschädigte (SZS).
