The sports fields are next to the ITZ Building. For pedestrians, the footpath from Rektor Karl-Heinz-Pollok-Strasse goes along a balcony along the outside of the building. Behind the sports complex, a school and the hospital are visible in the distance.
The ITZ building itself is one of the few buildings that aren't painted eggshell white or Bohemian Red. Instead, the white pillars, black-slate-like exterior walls and panoramic blue-green-tinted windows reflect its purpose as a centre of technology.
Along the handrail of the balcony, orange beacons and sirens seem slighly out of place. They're there because the sports fields were the primary heliport of the hospital in the past. Today, the sports fields are an alternative landing area, used only when the helicopter cannot land on the newer helipad on top of the hospital's multistorey car park. When necessary, the warning beacons and sirens alert people to clear the area to permit the approaching helicopter to land safely.
At the far end of the balcony, the river is hidden behind the trees that line the long distance Inn river cycle path.
The ITZ building is home to research groups, offices and modern seminar rooms.
It is the most energy efficient building on campus. For example, it uses river water to cool the server rooms.
To protect it from flooding, it sits on stilts. From above, the building looks like the mathematical symbol for the square root.
