There is more to being a student than studying

Naturally, studying in Braunschweig not only takes place in lecture halls and nightclubs: almost 90 student associations at TU Braunschweig offer you plenty of opportunities to get involved and make contacts beyond the daily routine of studying.

You can, for instance, get involved musically with AkaBlas, the orchestra or the choir of the university, support environmentally friendly projects with the Green Office, Sandkasten and Enactus or help students on their way into professional life with Bonding. If you prefer experimenting, tinkering or programming and would like to put the knowledge you have acquired during your studies into practice, you can work on your own racing car with the Lions Racing Team or take off with Akaflieg or ERIG. Try out what suits you.

Whether on stage, in workshops or in cockpits: 86 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 – As a student at TU Braunschweig, you have the opportunity to get involved wherever you want - either with reference to your field of study or your interests. Making friends is guaranteed.

The Campus lives from your ideas

With the “Sandkasten” (sandbox) platform, students have the opportunity to make the campus more livable and sustainable with their own projects. They can receive project funding and guidance for their projects. Around 150 projects have already been implemented, such as the self-built open-bike sensors for more bicycle safety in everyday life, the "Feminist Café" event series, a science podcast or the wildflower meadow on the main campus.

You can also play an active role in the development of our university by participating in a number of committees and commissions. This also includes the AStA, the General Students' Committee, which is elected by the students every semester and is the official representation of our students towards the university and politics, but also for social issues. 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 get involved in the relevant student councils.

Whether in sustainability projects, 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 your student involvement.


Whether you prefer the gym or fitness centre on campus, relax in the massage chair, play beach volleyball or even try out sailing, parachuting or climbing, with more than 200 classes per week in 100 sports, our Sports Centre offers the broadest sports programme in the region.

Events on Campus

At TU Braunschweig there are a variety of different events, many of which are free of charge, 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.

We consider it important to bring all members of our university together outside the lecture hall and to make what happens at our university visible to the public. For example 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 comcerts of the orchestra or the university choir, talk to experts from various faculties and much more.
