LMU Munich’s historic main building in the heart of the city is worldfamous. It is primarily home to the social sciences and humanities. The main university library is situated in the south wing of the main building. It houses nearly half of LMU Munich’s total stock of 6.6 million volumes available in the university’s central and more than 150 departmental libraries. The main library is close to the Bavarian State Library and several important museums and archives, providing an ideal infrastructure for research and study.

The majority of the natural and life sciences are concentrated at the HighTechCampus in Großhadern-Martinsried, a one-of-a-kind research campus in Europe. It enables innovative and interconnected research on the highest level, often in direct collaboration with the adjacent Max Planck Institutes for Biochemistry and Neurobiology, and with the Helmholtz Center Munich – National Research Center for Environment and Health.

In addition, the Innovation Center for Biotechnology (IZB) and BioM Biotech Cluster Development provide the necessary platforms for an efficient technology transfer of research results into practical application.
