Accessibility

Arriving –

Ubahn Südstern has an elevator access. 

Bus no. 104 stops in front of the Ubahn. 

The site is 10 minutes away from the station. 

Parking is available on Lilienthalstrasse.

Entering –

The site is wheel-chair accessible, as well as most spaces on the site, including toilets and bar. However, the class-room (Wabe) is not wheel-chair accessible. If you are attending an event in the class-room and would like to have assistance, please contact us at info@floatinguniversity.org.

*When arriving at the gate, if the large door on the right is closed, please inform us and we will open it for you.

Participating – 

The entry to our events is free, but we encourage donations at the entry. 

Workshops require a fee of 10€ incl. VAT, but discounts for students, pensioners, unemployed and ALGII- receivers, handicapped people and refugees are available upon sharing the relevant ID. 

Listening – 

Languages of our events are German and English. We try and announce the language of the events online. But if you have questions, please contact us. Sometimes Dinglish is used. But Members of the Floating association also converse in Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch and Hebrew. 

We unfortunately do not have access for the hearing impaired. We hope to correct that in the future. But the site is a natural biotop that engages all the senses. There are things to see and do here even if you are not attending our events. Please visit!

Gendering – 

Our toilets are multi-sex and non-binary. Please use the pink water containers to flush. 

Child-care – 

Out site is especially suitable for kids, and we hold many events for children. However, we do not provide child-care on site and we expect you to be responsible for your children on site at all times. 

Safer space –

A safer space is intended to be free of bias, conflict, criticism, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, or conversations for marginalized people. People who are marginalized need their own spaces in which they can be free from the marginalization that permeate every other societal space we occupy like racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, etc. Oppressed people need spaces where they can be  free from the stereotypic gaze – where they can simply and authentically be and express themselves. So we kindly ask that visitors to the Floating to respect the boundaries set by us or by a specific group if they see the safer space sign.
