We offer numerous extracurricular activities:

  • Orientation weeks: during the first weeks in October, we organize a broad program for you: administrative things, guided tour through MHH campus, our library and Hannover City, excursion to Celle, Welcome Party, Culture Shock seminar, crash course in German etc.
  • Excursions and cultural events: we offer a Berlin excursion for first years (supported by DAAD). And in cooperation with the International Office, we organize excursions to famous places in Lower Saxony as well as to the opera house or theatre.
  • Parties: we annually have our summer barbeque, the Christmas party and of course, the famous Indian party!
  • Sports: MHH has its own gym and you as a student are welcome to join for a very small fee only. In addition, Leibniz Universität and MHH offer a variety of sports courses every term for free. (see Hochschulsport or ask at the HBRS office)

Great research! Great fun!
