Baggern statt Bolzen

Our annual mixed volleyball tournament offers the best possible start to the new year with the motto: digging instead of hitting! The tournament traditionally takes place in January and registration is in teams of a maximum of 10 people.   

Students and employees of Leuphana as well as university sports instructors are eligible to participate. 


Celebrate the end of another semester with us and enjoy a varied evening at which the dance courses of the university sports department present the choreos they have learnt during the semester. From hip hop to couple dance to ballet, there's something for everyone! We are looking forward to an unforgettable evening with you, full of dance, music and fun. The evening will end with an after-show event at KLIPPO.  

The final dance evening takes place twice a year: once in February and once in July. 

Lüneburger Wochen gegen Rassismus (Lüneburg weeks against racism)

Every year in march we take part in the Lüneburg Weeks against Racism and try to organise an interesting event for you. Follow our news and see what's on this year. 

Campusliga / Campus League

Every year in May and June, the legendary Campus League takes place on the sports turf in front of the cafeteria - Leuphana's biggest football tournament!  

This event is aimed at all Leuphana students and employees, as well as university sports instructors, who enjoy playing football as a hobby and have fun playing together. The players can look forward to exciting matches and the special opportunity to immortalise themselves in the Leuphana history books as campus champions. The final will be played as part of the university sports festival. The game is played every Wednesday in teams with creative names and matching outfits.

Hochschulsportfest (university sports festival)

The absolute highlight of the event summer is our university sports festival: in addition to the notorious classic games of "Spiel ohne Grenzen", Kubb, Roundnet and beach volleyball, a varied supporting programme awaits you: A bungee trampoline, interactive stands from student initiatives and student councils, demonstrations and the final of the campus league will ensure that you won't be bored. Of course, your physical well-being will also be catered for, regardless of whether you are an active participant or want to meet up with fellow students or colleagues for an after-work drink. 

Prizes will be awarded not only to the most successful teams, but also to the best costume ideas, which will transform the festival into a colourful sea of colour. 

Don't miss out on this highlight, register or simply drop by. We look forward to a colourful day with you! 

Opening Week

Every October we would like to be there for the students of the first semester in the first week and organise a few fun and sporty activities for them. Take a look at what awaits you during this time! 

Nikolausiturnier / Nikolausi tournament

Our annual Nikolausi football tournament takes place in December. In a relaxed atmosphere and without excessive ambition, you can show off your dream goals and tricks in front of the other students and spectators.  

Only students or employees of the University of Lüneburg and university sports instructors are allowed to play. Think of creative team names and matching outfits!
