The workshops have their own dedicated support team, with 26 members of staff available to share their technical expertise and offer a comprehensive support service for their specialist areas. Each member of the team can provide expert know-how in a specialist area, advising on tools and methodologies to enable students to realise their artistic concepts and ideas.

Students can also benefit from the university library, which is open to the public. The library offers a wide and diverse range of media to support staff and students engaged in teaching, study, research and ongoing professional training at the university as well as in Braunschweig and the local region. It is a member of the Common Library Network GBV (the association of North German libraries) and collaborates closely with other organisations and institutions, representing the HBK as a member of various professional committees and associations. It is a specialist repository for a number of arts-related areas including the visual art of the 20th and 21st centuries, art history, media studies and industrial and communication design. Some of this specialist literature is unique to our library and cannot be found elsewhere.

The HBK Braunschweig enjoys links to a wide variety of other public institutions such as the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum, the Herzog August Library, the City Theatre Braunschweig, Wolfsburg Art Museum and a range of other art galleries and organisations. It also maintains partnerships with a number of other universities in Germany and abroad.
