Campus and City

A green campus in the middle of the city

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover is very influential in shaping the image of the state capital of Lower Saxony. It is not only buildings such as the “Welfenschloss”, the university's main location, that contribute to doing this, but above all people: approximately 30,000 students are currently enrolled. They have chosen one of the largest universities in Germany, known for its international excellence in teaching and research. With nine faculties and a comprehensive range of study programmes, Leibniz Universität Hannover covers virtually the entire academic spectrum.
