University highlights

Green and modern campus
Leuphana has a green campus with very modern facilities - most notably the new central building designed by star architect Daniel Libeskind.
Young and innovative
The Leuphana University of L√ľneburg was created in 2006 from a merger of two universities. Since then it has completely rethought the way we prepare students for the great challenges of the future.

About the University

Leu­pha­na ori­gi­na­ted in 2006 from the uni­que op­por­tu­ni­ty to re­think a uni­ver­si­ty. It is a foun­da­ti­on un­der pu­blic law and re­gar­ded to be a place for the de­si­re to know, for in­ge­nui­ty, for in­di­vi­du­al growth, and for pu­blic en­ga­ge­ment. Ad­van­cing our aca­de­mic mis­si­on is de­ter­mi­ned by three gui­ding ide­as: Hu­ma­nism, Sustaina­bi­li­ty and Ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-Ori­en­ta­ti­on.

Education
Stu­dy­ing at Leu­pha­na is or­ga­nis­ed in schools, which is still ex­cep­tio­nal in Ger­ma­ny. Col­le­ge, Gra­dua­te School and Pro­fes­sio­nal School pro­vi­de the op­por­tu­ni­ty for in­di­vi­du­al and au­to­no­mous learning in an in­s­pi­ring aca­de­mic com­mu­ni­ty. Our stu­dents are dis­tin­gu­is­hed for their rich­ness of in­te­rests, pu­blic en­ga­ge­ment, and en­tre­pre­neu­ri­al ac­tivi­ties.

Research
Leu­pha­na Uni­ver­si­ty’s collec­tive achie­ve­ment is gai­ning sci­en­ti­fic know­ledge with an awa­ren­ess of so­ci­al re­s­pon­si­bi­li­ty. Our main re­se­arch is in Edu­ca­ti­on, Hu­ma­nities and So­ci­al Sci­en­ces, Sustaina­bi­li­ty, and En­tre­pre­neurship, with a spe­cial fo­cus on Di­gi­ta­li­ty. Leu­pha­na’s ran­ge of fa­cul­ties in­clu­des the only Fa­cul­ty of Sustaina­bi­li­ty in Eu­ro­pe.

Campus
Leu­pha­na's cli­ma­te-neu­tral cam­pus is an in­s­pi­ring place for aca­de­mic life. A mi­les­to­ne in the dy­na­mic cam­pus de­ve­lop­ment is the new Cen­tral Buil­ding, in­au­gu­ra­ted in 2017, which was de­si­gned by Da­ni­el Li­bes­kind to­ge­ther with Leu­pha­na stu­dents.

Partners
Leu­pha­na en­joys a net­work of nu­merous stra­te­gic co­ope­ra­ti­ons. The most im­portant in­ter­na­tio­nal part­ners are the Uni­ver­si­ty of Glas­gow, Ari­zo­na Sta­te Uni­ver­si­ty and the City Uni­ver­si­ty of Hong Kong. Leu­pha­na co­ope­ra­tes re­gio­nal­ly with the Helm­holtz Cent­re for Ma­te­ri­als and Co­as­tal Re­se­arch in Geest­hacht and with the Ham­burg In­sti­tu­te for So­ci­al Re­se­arch.
