The New Augusteum is a building of the University of Leipzig at the Augustusplatz. It was created as part of the campus reconstruction since construction began in 2007. It is adjacent to the new building of the Paulinum - Auditorium and University Church of St. Paul, the spiritual and intellectual center of the University. The new Augusteum will again be the main building of the University of Leipzig and will include the main auditorium.

The architectural design by Erick van Egeraat for the new campus remembers now with parts of the facade and a correspondingly designed auditorium to the historic St Paul's Church. The metal-/Stone roof of the building in form of an add-on construction was developed by Schneider, 3D-designed and installed on-site.
