First Steps at the University

© Zentrale Studienberatung / LUH

Welcome to the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University Hannover! To make your start easier, we have listed the most important information for your first semester. Starting your studies is exciting because everything is new. You ask yourself "What do I have to keep in mind?" and "How is studying going to be?" The answers can be found on these websites:

GETTING STARTED - WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW (GERMAN LANGUAGE ONLY)

Due to the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the following changes should bei noted:
  • The semester documents (LeibnizCard) will be sent to all new students later than usual due to the extended application period.
  • The welcome event for new students will take place online. Introductory events and preliminary courses will be offered partly online and partly as face-to-face events (taking into account the applicable hygiene regulations)
  • The "Fragezeiten" fair will not take place in 2020. Alternatively, the brochure Any Questions? was created. There you will find all the information you need to study at Leibniz University Hannover.
  • When can I get my matriculation certificate and the LeibnizCard?
    Hinweis zur Immatrikulationsbescheinigung und zum Semesterticket

    From mid-September (winter semester) or mid-March (summer semester) the LeibnizCard will be sent to you (depending on the enrollment date), which includes the semester ticket. You can then print out your matriculation certificate via our online portal. You will also receive your personal LUH ID and initial password in order to register for the university's online services. Therefore, keep these documents well. For more information about the online services, see Tip 9 of the Study Checklist.


    The semester ticket is valid by the 01.10. (for the winter semester) or by 01.04. (for the summer semester) valid. Further information and a route map can be found on the AStA website (German language only).
