Campus Life

Discover our campus

Of course, studying in Braunschweig does not only take place in the lecture hall: In your free time, you can get involved in one of the numerous student initiatives, get active in university sports, party at the TU Night or help shape the campus according to your ideas.

Get involved!

Whether on stage, in workshops or in cockpits: 84 study programmes at our university naturally also contribute to the diversity and interdisciplinarity of everything that happens outside the lecture hall. As a student at TU Braunschweig, you have the opportunity to get involved wherever you want – either related to your subject or completely independent of it. Maybe you feel like developing self-driving model cars or you want to get involved in environmental protection? Or would you like to get to know the student cinema team or support the TU orchestra in its performances? There are almost no limits to where you can get involved. An overview of all student initiatives and associations at the TU Braunschweig can be found here:

Make new friends!

Our nearly 90 student associations, the university sports programme, and our campus festivals give you the opportunity to make new contacts and get to know fellow students from other study programmes.

Stay active!

TU Braunschweig Sports Center offers you a diverse and affordable range of sports, health and leisure activities. You can choose the right offer from a wide range of courses: Whether boxing, meditation, gliding, yoga, African Modern Dance or Quidditch (yes - even Muggles can play Quidditch!) - why not try out a new sport? But pay attention: Some courses are very popular, so it's best to sign up as soon as possible after registration starts.

On the Finn track you can do your running laps on a perfect underground. In the dark season the track is well lit.
When the weather is nice, it's best to work out outside: our outdoor fitness park offers you a wide range of training equipment.

Events on Campus

At TU Braunschweig there are a variety of different events that are open to you as a student and to anyone who is interested - perfect for broadening your own horizons or discovering the campus from a different perspective together with your fellow students.

TU-Night 2021: Lost Places

In 2021, the TU Night took place as a digital event for the first time due to the Corona pandemic. It featured a video series of science, art and music. Scientists gave insights into their research at TU Braunschweig from different perspectives. The topics of future viability and sustainability were particularly in focus. Here you can experience the TU Night 2021 in retrospect.

At the University Sports Festival, for example, you can get to know the wide range of activities offered by the TU Sports Centre and at "Profs at Turntables" our professors play music for a good cause in the clubs of Braunschweig. You can also broaden your horizons at lecture series, listen to the sounds of the orchestra or the university choir at musical performances, talk to experts from various departments and much more.

The Campus lives from your ideas

Whether in shaping the campus, active participation in committees and commissions or support for international students: in Braunschweig you will find freedom for active participation – and both the university and the campus need you as a student.

A few semesters ago, students started using the “Sandkasten” (sandbox) project to implement smaller on-campus design projects - such as pallet benches on the university plaza or a bicycle repair station directly on campus. Sandkasten contributes significantly to campus life with its projects.

Your engagement counts!

You can also play an active role in the development of our university by participating in a number of committees and commissions. The largest of those is the AStA (Allgemeiner Studierendenausschuss), the General Student Committee. The AStA is the official representation of our student body towards the university and politicians. If you want to get involved in your own area of study and help shape the future of your study programme, it is also worthwhile to participate in the relevant student councils.
