Life in Hanover

Hanover, the capital of Lower Saxony, is a large city surrounded by greenery. There are opportunities for leisure activities and local recreation everywhere in the Eilenriede city forest, in the numerous city parks, on the banks of the Leine and Ihme rivers and also at the Maschsee lake in the middle of Hanover. The official Hanover Portal offers good initial orientation and lots of valuable information.


Neighbourhoods such as Linden, Nordstadt, Limmer and Südstadt are particularly popular with many students. Shared flats and single flats in these neighbourhoods are in high demand. You can obviously also live in the midst of life in one of the sixteen residential buildings of the Studentenwerk (Student Services Association) Hanover.

Travelling by bus and train

The rail and bus network in Hanover is very well-developed. With the Semesterticket (semester ticket), a function of the CampusCard, you can use all routes within all tariff zones of the Greater Hanover area (suburban trains, buses) and almost all local trains in Lower Saxony and Bremen.

BAföG (Federal Educational Assistance Act)

The Studentenwerk Hanover will gladly provide you with all information related to BAföG and Co. The BAföG officer at the Hochschule Hannover (Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts) is also easy to contact and will answer any questions you may have on the subject.
