TU Vision: „Universität Leben" TUesday Lounge on 18.1.

At the 1st TUesday Lounge in January, the focus is on the view of the colleagues from TU Wien support units on "University life" – online event on the Gathertown platform.

This academic year we at TU Vision are dedicating our efforts to the theme "Living University"!

For our team that means 

  • Mindfulness
  • Respectful Encounters
  • Exciting Discourse
  • Participation
  • Initiative
  • Responsibility


The idea was to implement our vision, with support from the rectorate, face-to-face in the "TUesday Lounge" at Kontaktraum (Campus Gußhaus), starting from December 2021 onwards. 
Due to in-person events not being feasible at the moment, we have opted to pivot online – to GATHERTOWN – for the time being as we did not want to extend the waiting period any longer.

18. January: Perspective of colleagues

In our first TUesday Lounge this year, we are focusing on the perspective of colleagues from TU Wien support units on the topic of "Living University". Guests Heidi Pichler, Jürgen Fränzer, Eva Nedoma, Martin Kolassa and Elisabeth Schludermann will share and discuss their visions of “Living University” with all participants in a (virtual) lounge chat.

25. January: Perspective of students

At our next event on 25. January 2022 we will centre the visions of students on "Living University".


The examination of this year’s theme will be continued during summer term, particularly the perspective of young scientists. Furthermore, we would like to raise the question what "Living University" has to do with space and spaces – inside and outside.

Platform Gathertown

Gathertown provides a welcome change to the well-established Zoom-format. In case you are new to the platform we suggest entering the event a few minutes early to familiarise yourself with its playful elements.
