— Your chance to get active and get involved —

You want to get involved, meet people and organize cool events, but you don’t know how? Maybe there is something for you in the following societies. Simply write to the speakers by e-mail or via the social media channels or just come along to the next meeting if you feel like it! All the societies are happy to see new faces!

Here you will find a brief overview of the following presentations. You can also get more information via the menu.


The AntiRa is committed to dismantling racism and discrimination in everyday life and society. This includes making racist and discriminatory structures visible (also in the university context) and raising social awareness about the existence of such structures.
They want to support institutions and people who work to reduce racism and discrimination and critically reflect on their own perspectives and actions in our system or encourage other people to deal with social and structural discrimination. In doing so, they actively shape university life and want to contribute to a tolerant and sensitized society and student body, and we are also always happy to welcome new people who want to join in.



The autonomous society for Chronic Illness, Handicaps and Inclusion, Mental Illness, Empowerment, and Learning Disabilities (ARCHIPEL) is for all students who experience specific limitations and restrictions due to their bodies. Due to chronic illnesses, handicaps, mental illnesses but also learning impairments, structural as well as institutional barriers take on a special significance for the life and learning of students.
The concern of ARCHIPEL is to listen to difficulties and problems from your everyday study life, to take you seriously and to support you, to take action against disadvantages, to create an atmosphere of community help, to make our university a place where people in all health situations can study appropriately. In doing so, they oppose a view of humanity that makes deficiencies out of deviations from an ostensible norm.

AStA living room (WoZi)

The AStA-WoZi is a society that tries to promote the cultural life on campus by offering musical engagements such as concerts and jams, but also readings and the like.
The WoZi is a non-commercial free space, which means for us that the space is available for everyone during the lecture period or after arrangement also outside of it. We want to give artists, committed people, and students the opportunity to get involved in different ways, for example by organizing their own events or events in cooperation with the WoZi team.



We hear a lot of sustainability blah-blah-blah at our university. But what to do with it? Das Öko?-logisch!-society (literally translated: eco?-of course!) is the space where sustainability can become reality. Whether it’s a public event or a concrete campus change, everything takes place at Öko?-logisch! We actively shape a better university, city and world with our own ideas and the freedom that is available to us within the AStA. You can introduce or take up your topics in Öko?-logisch!
We currently organize a weekly market on campus every Thursday, maintain the nesting boxes, organize eco?-logical! campus tours, organize a vegan break every two weeks and a lot of odds and ends. We also organize an event week every semester – sometimes on the energy transition, sometimes on waste avoidance – deal with animal-human relationships and contribute to the critical film offerings in Lüneburg.


PFUI – The policy unit

The political society wants to contribute to the shaping of civil society in the 21st century. Hereby politics is understood in the broadest sense: university and general politics, by no, mean limited to committees, but rather in active and perhaps also daily action, and not at all politically disenchanted. But also, discussions
about political theory(s) are gladly heard and seen!
Sustainability and justice can only be thought together and can only have an effect on the whole spectrum from the local to the global. Therefore, the political society tries to cover as diverse a range of topics as possible. The society is organized in a grassroots way and works in a beginner-friendly way.



QuARG stands for Queer, Awareness, Equal Rights, and Gender Matters. QuARG is interested in everything related to gender and sexuality. This includes homosexuality, bisexuality, heterosexuality, asexuality, intersexuality, and trans identity, as well as feminism, sexism, and queerness. One focus of our work is political education. QuARG advocates for equality aims to make discrimination and privilege visible and strives to counteract them. We also use our mandate in the General Student Committee (AStA) precisely for this purpose.
The QuARG does many different things: We are the contact for all students who have something on their mind and want to contact us. We organize a colorful bouquet of events in their subject area; these can be lectures, workshops, film screenings, actions on campus, and much more. New ideas are always welcome. We also organize cozy meetups, such as our regular QuARG evening, to simply have a nice time together and exchange ideas. Here, too, anyone who likes can drop by and take part
