The university has a high expertise in mining, metallurgy and materials.

Student life

There’s a lot going on in Leoben outside university life. Festive activities and events for students include the LEMusic-Night, when Leoben’s clubs and bars are turned into small event stages, or major concerts at Leoben’s main square. A highlight in Leoben’s event calendar is the Gösser fair [Gösser Kirtag]: thousands of visitors from near and far come to see the longest “fair strip” in Austria and enjoy a glass of beer in the Gösser beer tent.

Water, fun and relaxation
The water experience world “Asia Spa” combines fun and relaxation in a unique way. Visitors enjoy the synthesis of sports, fun and fitness on one hand and complete relaxation and health/beauty treatments on the other. The area comprises 45,000 m² and is only a few minutes walk from the city centre and university campus. Also special discount exists for Montauniversitaet Leoben students when you want to have a membership which costs 35 Euros per month.

Shopping and culture
Shopping has been elevated to a new dimension with the “LeobenCityShopping” (LCS). Right in the city centre and built within the historic walls of a former Dominican monastery, shopaholics will find a wide range of stores, as well as an assortment of cafés and restaurants in an area of 20,000 m².  Under the slogan “7 rails into the past”, 2,000 years of city, regional and mining history are reviewed in the city’s “MuseumsCenter”. The art gallery [Kunsthalle] is located in the same spacious building, where special annual cultural and historical exhibitions have attracted thousands of visitors for more than a decade.
