JKU Linz Ball.

The JKU's first Summer Ball on Campus in 2024.

Times of change require fresh, new ideas and this also applies to celebrations and festivities! The Johannes Kepler University Linz will host its first Summer Ball under the motto, "DANCE THE KEPLER", on Friday, June 14, 2024. It will be a night-long celebration of community and entertainment, right here at the JKU!

The JKU intends to embark toward a new era and host a special kind of university ball inspired by the university's namesake, Johannes Kepler. For one evening, the campus will be transformed into a unique venue where science, academia, education, and dancing come together for one unforgettable night!
