How do I register for the Opening Week?

To participate in the Opening Week, you have to register for the project work. You can find an overview of the project topics here. On 29 September at around 1pm we sent you an email with the link to the registration platform. Please write to us at openingweek@leuphana.de if you have not received this email.

Where and when does the Opening Week start on 6 October?

The official opening of the Opening Week starts at 10:15 am in the Libeskind Auditorium. After the opening ceremony, you will meet your project group and tutor so that you can spend the first lunch break at Leuphana University together. Here you can see exactly where the project groups meet.

Will the Opening Week take place on site?

Yes, we want you to have an unforgettable start week and this includes meeting spaces so that you can get to know the campus together, immerse yourself in university life and make new friends. We therefore cordially invite you to participate in the Opening Week and the project work on site.

What Corona rules apply on campus during the Opening Week?

In the last two years, there could be no large gatherings due to the pandemic. This year, however, we are returning to the auditorium in the central building of Leuphana University for the central events. For handling and precaution against the coronavirus, the general regulations of the university apply, which you can access here.

Can I take part in the Opening Week if I am not in Lüneburg?

No, the Opening Week will take place completely on campus this year. If you are unable to attend the Leuphana Opening Week in person for health reasons or need support for your participation (for example due to a physical disability), please send us an email to openingweek@leuphana.de. It is important to us to find an inclusive solution for all students.

Where can I find the descriptions of the project topics?

You can find the descriptions of the different project topics here.

How do I set up my timetable?

Please, find a short guide here.

How do I access the WLAN?

You can register for the Leuphana WLAN via your LG number. General information about the Leuphana WLAN can be found here.

Where can I get my Leuphana Card?

The tutors will distribute the Leuphana Card to the project groups during the Opening Week. A deposit of 10 € will be charged for the card. Please bring the exact amount with you, if possible. In order to borrow books and use the printers, you need to have your Leuphana Card personalised. To do this, first register using the online registration form of the Media and Information Centre (MIZ) and then go to the service desk in the library foyer. Please sign the card only after it has been personalised, not before.

Due to renovations, the University Library can currently be reached via an alternative entrance. You can find all information about this and other issues here.

What language will be spoken during the Opening Week?

English will be spoken during Opening Week. But don't worry: we don't expect anyone to have perfect language skills. We want to include all students in the Opening Week and are happy about the diversity and internationality at Leuphana.

What is the best way to get to campus?

There will be a bus shuttle between the train station and the university during the Opening Week. Here you can find the times of the bus shuttle.

In addition, bus lines 5011 (Blücherstraße stop) and 5012 (Universitätsallee stop) are running between Leuphana and the train station.

There are also StadtRAD stations on campus and at the train station where you can rent a bike. Information about the StadtRAD and the code for free use for 60 minutes can be found here.

What do I need to bring to the Opening Week?

Besides a lot of curiosity, we would like to ask you to bring a mouth-nose protection in any case. Also, a laptop or other mobile device with a large screen would be handy, as would headphones. There are projectors with HDMI or VGA connections in the rooms. If you happen to have suitable adapters for your laptops, we would be grateful if you could bring them along too.

What do I do if I can't attend all days of the Opening Week?

If you are exceptionally unable to attend one day of the Opening Week, be sure to let your project group and tutor know!

However, we encourage you to see Opening Week as a chance to network with the students in your group and get to know the university. Make the most of this very special week.

What do I have to consider as an international student?

For all international students, there will be a special introduction to the Leuphana Bachelor, the Leuhana semester and myStudy on Friday, October 7, from 9 am on. You will meet in room C.40.501. You find this programme item also in our programme overview on Friday morning.

Where may I ask further questions about the Opening Week?

During the Opening Week, there will be an information point in the foyer of the Central Building where you are always more than welcome!

Of course, you can also send us an email at any time to openingweek@leuphana.de.
