Stay at Leibniz Universität Hannover


WELCOME RECEPTION

The Welcome Reception is a good opportunity to socialise with other international students and to get answers to important questions.


ONLINE SERVICES AND COURSE REGISTRATION

All students must register to use online services at Leibniz University Hannover. Stud.IP is the learning platform of Leibniz University Hannover where you can register for language courses and most university courses. In order to use Stud.IP, you must activate your account by using your LUH ID.

  • Activation of the Online services
    • Log in to your account on the identity management website. You will find your LUH ID on your study data sheet which you received with your student ID or in a separate letter from the Admissions Office.

    • After the registration, you can activate various online services, such as Wi-Fi or Stud.IP. Detailed instructions on how to register for courses via Stud.IP are provided in the next section.
  • Course Registration with Stud.IP

    Registration for language courses is only possible via Stud.IP. Several institutes also require students to register for lectures and seminars via Stud.IP.

    Registration for language courses now only takes place via Stud.IP. For many other courses and seminars, prior registration via Stud.IP is also necessary. First you have to activate Stud.IP (activating your account on the identity management website). Under "Courses/Add a course", search for the name of the course or look at overviews of the courses offered by the institutions at the university. Language courses can be found under "Zentrale Einrichtungen" and then "Fachsprachenzentrum". You can then register for the relevant courses.

    Please note: Some courses have a registration deadline!

  • Opening a Bank Account

    In Germany, you can pay by debit card in most shops and restaurants. Moreover, rent is usually paid by direct debit. It is therefore advisable to open a current account. Most banks in Hannover offer free current accounts (“Girokonto”) for students.

    Please bring the following documents to open an account:

    • your passport
    • the registration form issued by the citizen centre
    • your student ID

    If you would like to open a blocked account for visa purposes, please ask a bank employee for further information.
