    The heart of Leibniz Universität Hannover beats in the idyllic Welfenschloss. In 1879 it was moved from the 1831 founded higher vocational school and later Royal Technical College. From initially 64 students of the vocational school have now become around 23,000 students. More than 2,300 scientists work here at nine faculties with over 160 institutes.

    In the Welfenschloss there is, among other things, the Docu Lounge, which is operated by the Ricoh company. The Welfenschloss is the headquarters of the Leibniz University Hannover (LUH)

About 90 subjects are available. [4] The University of Hanover is a member of TU9 German Institutes of Technology e. V.

    The Welfenschloss was originally intended to be the main residence of the monarchs of the Kingdom of Hanover. In the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, Hanover was allied with Austria and was therefore on the losing side. Prussia then annexed the Kingdom of Hanover and the Welfs went into exile in Austria. At that time the castle was still under construction, so the Hanoverian court had never been able to move into it. After that, it stood empty for several years. It was not until 1879 that the Polytechnic, a forerunner of today's university, moved there. Since then it has been used for university purposes.
