How do I register for the Opening Week?

We have sent an email to all first semester students with an invitation and information on how to sign up and register. If you have not received this email by now but are already enrolled, please contact us at openingweek@leuphana.de.

How do I access the EventMobi platform after registration?

You can register for EventMobi via the link provided in the Opening Week invitation that all first semester students received by email. The registration is possible from October 04. After that, please login with the email address you used during registration.

Alternatively, you can download the EventMobi app for iOS and Android.

Where and when does the Opening Week starts on October 07?

The Opening Week starts on October 07 at 10am with a meet up of the project groups on campus. The project group you’ve chosen, has a number. With this number you can look up the meeting point of your group here.

At 11:15am you may join your project group to watch the opening ceremony of the Opening Week. On October 07 and 08 you will be introduced to the project subjects and get first insights into the topic "NEW DEAL" as well as an outlook on your study program. 

So, the Opening Week starts on October 07 and 08, 2021. After a free weekend, the program continues on Monday, October 11. On Friday, October 15, we will conclude the Opening Week together with the finale show.

You can find all information about the program in the Eventmobi app (if you have already registered) or here.

Presence on campus in times of pandemic

The most important message: The University is planning the winter semester in presence on campus. We want you to have an unforgettable Opening 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. So we invite you to participate in the Opening Week and the project work on site.

If there’s no way for you to make it to Lüneburg, it’s possible to participate in a digital project group. You will see which project groups take place exclusively digitally during the registration process on EventMobi. Please choose one of these groups only with a valid reason. Those groups were created to allow especially people in the high risk group to participate in the Opening Week.

On campus, we divide 1,400 first-semester students into about 100 groups with a maximum of 14 participants and a tutor. You and your project group will have access to a seminar room. The "Morning Show", talks and impulses will be streamed from a studio in the central building of the university. You can follow the livestreams together with your project group in your seminar room. Your tutor will help you with any questions that may arise.

What corona rules apply on campus during the Opening Week?

The University combines the freedom to meet up again in person with appropriate health protection measurements. Therefore, the following rules apply on campus during the Opening Week:

  1. A 3G proof (vaccinated, recovered or tested) is required throughout Opening Week. The proof will be checked every morning by the tutors.
  2. One is not allowed to enter the university buildings without said 3G proof.
  3. There is a testing center available in the central buildung of the Leuphana University. The testing there is free for all first semester students throughout the Opening Week.
  4. Please stay at home if you have symptoms that indicate a Covid-19 infection (dry cough, fever, runny nose, etc.).
  5. Please try to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other people.
  6. Whenever the minimum distance cannot be kept, please wear a medical mouth-nose protection.
  7. Mouth-nose protection must always be worn within the buildings, especially on the hallways inside.
  8. Within the seminar rooms, the mouth-nose protection can be dispensed if the minimum distance of 1.5 meters is ensured.

May I participate in the Opening Week if I can't be on site in Lüneburg?

In addition to the digital events of this Opening Week, all project group meetings will take place in presence. Nevertheless, in order to allow all students to participate in this special week, there will be some groups that will take place exclusively digitally. Please choose one of these groups only with a valid reason. Those groups were created to allow especially people in the high risk group to participate in the Opening Week.

I need help with myStudy!

During the Opening Week there will be an introduction to myStudy on 8th October from 10:15 - 12:15.

General information can be found on this page.

Telephone support will be available from 8 until 15 October (Mo - Fr) from 9 am - 1 pm on 04131 6771159.
Otherwise, support is available at mystudy@leuphana.de.

How do I create my schedule?

Please find a short tutorial here.

How do I get on the WIFI?

Where do I get my Leuphana Card?

During the Opening Week you will receive your Leuphana Card from the tutor of your project group. There is a deposit of 10 € for the Leuphana Card. I’d be great if you had this exact amount on you on the first day. For the loan of books and the use of printers you have to personalize your card. To do this, first register using the online registration form of the Media and Information Center (MIZ) and then see the staff at the service desk in the library foyer. Please sign your Leuphana Card after this personalization, not before.

If you participate in the Opening Week in digital form only, you can pick up your Leuphana Card at the University Library during the semester. 

Due to renovations, the main entrance of the library is currently blocked. Please use the alternative entrance. You may find all information about this and other issues here.

What language will be spoken during the Opening Week?

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

What is the best way to get to campus?

During the Opening Week a bus shuttle will commute between the train station and the university. Please find the timetable here.

In addition, bus number 5011 and 5012 are regularly running between Leuphana and the train station. Also, you can rent bikes at the city bike stations on campus and at the train station.

Information about the city bike as well as the code for free usage for 60 minutes has been prepared for you by the AStA here.

What do I need to bring to the Opening Week?

Besides a lot of curiosity, we’d like to ask you to bring a face mask in any case. Also, for hygienic reasons, some of the waiting times will be spent outside. Therefore, a rainproof jacket can't hurt.

If you have a laptop or other mobile device with a large screen, please bring it along. Headphones would also be very useful. Feel free to bring some if you have any. There are projectors with HDMI or VGA connections in the rooms. If you happen to have suitable adapters to connect those with your laptop, we’d be really grateful if you could bring them with you as well.

What do I do if I can't attend every day in the Opening Week?

If you can't make it to one day of the Opening Week, be sure to let your tutor know!

We encourage you to see the  Opening Week as a chance to network with students in your group and get to know the university. Take advantage of this very special week!

Where do I find the descriptions of the project subjects?

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

I still have questions! Who can I ask them to?

During the Opening Week there will be an information point in the foyer of the central building and you are very welcome to visit us there any time!
