About us


At Kopfzeile we express our thoughts in a straightforward fashion. We an independent editorial team of students at the University of Hamburg and write about everything that is important to us and of interest to you. In addition to topics related to the campus and the city of Hamburg, you will also find reports on media, culture, politics, sustainability and, most recently, health on our website.

How did we come about? The university lacked a platform where students could let off some journalistic steam. That’s why we came into the picture in December 2019 out of an initiative by students of the Master’s programme “Journalism and Communication Studies”. Online only, we have been telling stories from our everyday lives in the Hanseatic city and from everywhere else since May 2020. Always from the students’ perspective – for everyone.

Would you also like to try your hand at journalism? Or drop by our editorial meetings? We meet every Wednesday at 6 pm via Zoom. Just send us an email for the link. We are always happy to receive support and interesting ideas.

You can find our editorial team here.
