Be 4 Business e.V.

We are a large student initiative and at the same time a registered association of the Hochschule Harz. As a community we sweeten the study with excursions, weekly social gatherings and various events such as the "Your Prof is your DJ-Party" in the winter semester, where the professors of our university play for you!


Furthermore, we are working on a new project to live up to our name in terms of "business". So be curious!

If you are interested in events, have creative ideas and would like to put them into practice, then come by and plan the next event together with us!


If you would like to get involved and make many new contacts at the same time, we welcome you by ♡.


Your B4B



eSport & Gaming Hochschule Harz offers students with interest in video games the possibility to find like-minded people to pursue their hobby together. Competitive-interested players can join a team for their favourite game and compete for their Hochschule Harz e.g. in the University eSport-League Germany (UEG), together with other fellow students, against other German universities.


In addition, those who just want to play relaxed can also network with like-minded people and meet new people. Since we do not want to create purely virtual acquaintances, we also organize smaller events such as a board game evening at our university.


You can reach us via our Facebook page, by email or Instagram.






Every semester, the university cinema "Film ab!" presents a varied programme with the latest film highlights and changing specials. For the perfect film pleasure we offer further snacks & drinks besides our fresh popcorn. In addition, we support university institutions and other initiatives in acquiring licenses and thus realize special screenings.  



The special atmosphere and student-friendly prices make the university cinema a unique experience for all film enthusiasts. It is impossible to imagine the cultural offerings on campus without the cinema. We are looking forward to seeing you!

The InterForum is the local ERASMUS initiative at the Harz University. We are a group of students who accompany international exchange students through their daily student life with a colourful programme. Through numerous events, such as language tandems, smaller gatherings and local excursions in the Harz mountains, we support the cohesion between international and local students.


Additionally, we organize the format "Interforum goes...", in which we travel to a European city every semester. Our figurehead is the "International Evening". At this semester highlight, students and staff of the university put together culinary delicacies and a colourful cultural programme.

Your dream can come true in culture shock!


The culture shock takes care of the cultural enrichment of the student's everyday life and organises great projects like plays or the annual Halloween party every year. We are always on the lookout for new, creative minds to enrich our colourful bunch.


You can get an insight into the activities of the culture shock in our short video interview.

Friends of Music


The name says it all - we like music. But that doesn't mean that you have to be musically talented to become a part of the MF family! Although you can also show your skills at our Karaoke nights.


In the winter semester, we're organizing a big party at the Elmo Club, and there are no limits to your creativity in choosing a motto, as long as it can be realized in a deco-technical way. In the summer semester, the campus party is on the agenda with the special feature that we have our own stage where "our" DJs can really heat up the place!


During the semester we are actually present at every party, because we take care of the music in the basement. If you like to play yourself or if you want to try it out, we offer you the opportunity to do so!

Studying with children is an initiative of students with children for students with children. The basic idea is to represent the interests of parents studying and to offer a platform for exchange. For this purpose, meetings with experts are arranged, roundtables are set up and assistance on everyday questions is offered.

Under the motto "Move something to move you" we, as sports friends, shape campus life at the university in a sporty way.


As one of the university's strongest member initiatives and in close cooperation with the university sports department, we have been able to realize events such as the beach volleyball tournament, the Zumba Charity Party and the surf trip in recent years. Every winter semester, we plan the athletes' party together, in the summer semesters the neon party. Together with our members, we go on excursions, such as hiking or canoeing tours, in order to actively organize our free time.


We are happy about everyone who is interested in bringing in their own ideas and actively shaping student life in a more sporty way together with us!


You can find out more on Facebook at or on Instagram at @Sportfreunde_Hs_Harz.
