We study the value distribution of the Epstein zeta function En(L,s) for 0<s<n2 and a random lattice L of large dimension n. For any fixed c(1/4,1/2) and n, we prove that the random variable Vn2cEn(,cn) has a limit distribution, which we give explicitly (here Vn is the volume of the n-dimensional unit ball). More generally, for any fixed ε>0, we determine the limit distribution of the random function cVn2cEn(,cn), c[1/4+ε,1/2ε]. After compensating for the pole at c=1/2, we even obtain a limit result on the whole interval [1/4+ε,1/2], and as a special case we deduce the following strengthening of a result by Sarnak and Strömbergsson concerning the height function hn(L) of the flat torus Rn/L: the random variable n{hn(L)(log(4π)γ+1)}+logn has a limit distribution as n, which we give explicitly. Finally, we discuss a question posed by Sarnak and Strömbergsson as to whether there exists a lattice LRn for which En(L,s) has no zeros in (0,).
