The events always take place wednesdays at 18:30 h and begin with a 45-60 minute lecture, followed by discussion and casual conversation with drinks and snacks. The so-called "Alte Bibliothek" (Old Library), a  medieval half-timbered house in the courtyard of Brühl 20 in Hildesheim provides a pleasant setting for this purpose. The lectures are public, admission is free.

The history of the Hornemann Kolleg:
For the past 30 years, the restoration study programs, the research projects and the cooperative programs with foreign universities at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen (HAWK) have been special, exclusive programs that no other university in northern Germany was able to offer. They are among the study programs that give the university its respected international reputation. But we are moving in a network of collegues- within the HAWK, in the region, in the country and internationally, of course - and also for all projects in the international dialogue with colleagues of other related fields.

At the suggestion of students the Hornemann Institute of the HAWK takes up this network activity, and organizes in collaboration with the Student Council a new lecture and discussion series with several public and free of charge events, the so-called “Hornemann Kolleg for restoration and preservation".
The aim is to enrich the curriculum with current issues and to support the professional orientation.
