First name change is possible at Leuphana


Since June 2022, an early first name change is possible at Leuphana. This means that the supplementary identity card of the German Society for Transidentity and Intersexuality (dgti e.V.) will be recognised. The aim is to improve the study and work situation of trans*, inter* and non-binary students and employees at Leuphana through the change of first name.
With the change of first name in the student administration system, in future only the newly chosen first name, which results from the supplementary identity card or the official proof of change, will be used on all university documents. The issuing of the degree certificate is exempt from this.
