Room of Silence

Room of Silence

A Room of Silence was established at Leibniz University Hannover in mid-January 2013. The Room of Silence, available for use by any member of the university, is a place for relaxation, prayer and meditation. Although it is not specifically a place of worship, all religious groups are welcome to use the Room of Silence.

The Room of Silence is the ideal place for those seeking a quiet retreat. Consideration and acceptance of others are basic prerequisites. To ensure that the Room of Silence is used as envisaged, a number of rules have been established, accessible below.

Opened again from 02nd May 2022

The Room of Silence will be open to visitors again from 02nd May 2022. We look forward to your visit.
