The lower part of the campus will be used for lecture and tutorial rooms and the upper floors for laboratories. The main entrance will be located on the lower floor with a circular connection to both existing buildings. In accordance with the overall vision of the University of Ljubljana, appropriate spatial and infrastructural conditions are provided for the implementation of the educational programme and research and scientific work at the highest professional level.
