Announcements and communications

Would you like to advertise an event at the University of Konstanz? You have several options for promoting your event.

University of Konstanz events calendar

The university hosts a large number of events. The events calendar provides an overview, both online and in print.

Online events calendar

You can add your event to the online events calendar at any time. Please fill in the following form. Communications and Marketing will check whether your entry contains all the relevant information and activate it. As soon as this has happened, your event will be visible in the online events calendar.

Instructions and further details are included next to the fields in the form. If you have questions about completing the form, please contact the university’s online editorial staff.

Printed events calendar

Additionally, the University of Konstanz publishes a printed calendar of public events in order to reach interested people from both the university and the surrounding areas. The print calendar is published at the start of each semester - twice a year - and targets interested members of the general public, media and schools.

The print calendar only includes those events that were included in the online events calendar as of the print date. The printed events calendar is available free of charge at the university, by mail and at public places in and around the city of Konstanz. Please approach Communications and Marketing with any questions about the printed events calendar.

Monitors in the entrance area

You may also use the monitors in the university entrance area to announce your events and activities. Event and Conference Management will take care of the technical side of things.

We kindly request, however, that you take the following into account:

  • Your presentation or digital poster may be a maximum of two pages in length since the announcements run in a loop.
  • The person turning in the presentation is responsible for its content.
  • Please email us your Powerpoint, PDF or JPEG file at least three days before the announcement is to appear.
  • Please identify the time period during which you would like to have the announcement shown.

The foyer beamer

In order to use the foyer beamer, please book both the beamer and the space in front of the projection screen with room reservation.

Please email your presentation to Event and Conference Management at least three days before it is to be shown. Presentations need to be in Powerpoint format, films in WMV format.

We will check and upload your presentation and make sure the beamer automatically projects it during the reserved period of time.

  • other internal events (e.g. student councils, university groups, etc.)
