The USAC office and classes are located on the campus of Leuphana University Lüneburg. The present-day university was founded in 1946 as a School of Education, greatly expanded in the 1980s, and moved to its current campus in 1994. In 2005, the University of Lüneburg merged with the Lüneburg University of Applied Sciences. Because of this merger, USAC and the Department of Automation Technology offer engineering classes to both USAC and German students.
Students on the Luneburg program have the option of staying in a homestay with daily breakfast and one additional meal a week (not available during the summer) or in nearby shared apartments. Homestays provide an unmatched opportunity for practicing your French and learning French culture and customs and is highly recommended.

Language course sections are kept to a maximum enrollment of 15 students each. All students are required to select a language track plus elective courses for a total of 12-18 courses.
Students will enroll in three to six credits per session. Summer language courses are intensive, with one to six credits of German taught in each five-week session.

At least one 3-credit course is required each summer session.
Course availability is contingent upon student enrollment and is subject to change. For more information about the courses and structure of the program please visit the USAC Luneburg website.
