In April 2021 Lancaster University Leipzig moved to its new campus in Strohsack-Passage, Nikolaistrasse 10.
Situated inside the pedestrianised city centre and next to the city’s historic icon ‘Nikolaikirche’/St. Nicolas Church – the place of origin of the Peaceful Revolution in 1989 - it is an unparalleled location to support a dynamic and exciting student experience.
Be transported to Strohsack Passage and view the fantastic facilities we have on offer. Check out the modern study space, and picture yourself on the roof terrace as you challenge friends to a game of ping pong!
The University occupies three floors of the building:
Offering a warm welcome to all our students and staff, the reception and Student Services team are situated on the first floor. The dynamic space creates a communal area for our students with an extensive library, study rooms, and self-study zones, all equipped with modern and comfortable furniture.
The sixth floor hosts our three mobile IT labs, offices, large and small seminar rooms, and also our career services department. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and contemporary furniture which complements our calm and spacious working environment.
Home to our lecture theatre, a quiet learning zone, more offices and seminars and our amazing rooftop terrace with a stunning view over the city, the seventh floor is abundant with impressive features. Apart from daily use for learning and teaching, this floor was designed to host conferences, as well as networking and corporate events.
Expanding across the first and seventh floor, our entertainment and social spots are there for both students and staff to use. Students have access to the student kitchen, ping pong, table football, and gaming zone with an Xbox and PlayStation. For fun events, speakers, music and a karaoke machine are also all available for the students to use.
Directly in the inner city, the campus is conveniently situated 500 metres away from the main train station and all local tram lines. The “ring” surrounding the inner city of Leipzig is brimming full of cafes, bars, restaurants and many shopping opportunities. Weekly markets occur on the market places and many events throughout the year make the city a lively and exciting place to be a part of.
Whether your interest lies in sporting events, cultural activities such as visiting museums and art galleries, or finding quieter spots of nature to relax in – Leipzig really does have it all.
