Future Student Updates (COVID-19)

Lancaster University Leipzig will be moving to Strohsack-Passage

December 14, 2020

The search is over! Lancaster University is delighted to announce that its European campus in Leipzig will move to new permanent premises next year. The temporary campus, currently situated in Design Offices at Augustusplatz, will be vacated in 2021, with operations moving permanently to Strohsackpassage, Nikolaistrasse 10, Leipzig.

Situated inside the pedestrianized 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.

In the initial part of a two-phase move in 2021, Lancaster University Leipzig plans to move into the sixth floor in the first half of the year, with an expansion into the first and seventh floors later in the year. Lancaster University Leipzig currently offers four Bachelor programmes and two Foundation programmes, with a five-year plan to post-graduate programmes (Masters and PhDs) as well as an expanding research base.

The campus Academic Dean Dr Mark Brewer welcomed the move: “Located in the heart of Leipzig, the new campus offers amazing opportunities for the University’s outreach and engagement with businesses, government entities, higher education institutions, scholarly and funding bodies, and a host of other important stakeholders. Our presence in such an exciting, thriving location allows us to support various creative projects, incubators, and labs to respond to a variety of opportunities in the local community and across Europe while providing us with an outstanding platform to promote meaningful knowledge exchange and host high profile academic conferences”.

Dr Elisabeth Grindel-Denby, Campus Director, said: “We are proud to be able to offer our students a complete holistic student experience – including individualised support (welfare, career development, language support, etc.).  Our location inside the city centre of Leipzig further allows us to help students to enjoy all that is special about this time of their lives”.

Students are supported in non-academic matters by the University’s local partner Navitas Germany GmbH. Lancaster University is one of UK’s top 10 universities, and Lancaster University Leipzig distinguishes itself through its broad strategic focus on students, research and engagement.
