The Philipps-Universität Marburg is not a campus university. Its buildings are spread throughout the city center and the Lahnberge, which are around three kilometers east of the city center. The Lahnberge site is home primarily to the natural and life sciences. The University Clinic of Gießen and Marburg (UKGM) and a large portion of the Department of Medicine are also located atop the Lahnberge. Work has been in progress for several years on the Campus Firmanei, located in direct proximity to the St. Elisabeth Church. Several former clinic buildings there are being converted. Many institutes of the humanities that were previously in the high-rise buildings of the so-called PhilFak – the Faculty of Philosophy, which is located next to the highway that runs through Marburg  – have moved to the Campus Firmanei. The main library of the university is also located there.
