Welcome to the Booster Association Alumni Freiburg e.V.

Do you think back fondly on your time as a student? Alumni Freiburg gives you the chance to stay involved at “your university” even after the conclusion of your studies.

Alumni Freiburg is an active community of former Freiburg students. Alumni provide funding for student research projects, dissertation printing costs, and travel aid for academic excursions through their membership dues. The association also endows alumni prizes for academic achievement and exemplary social involvement at the faculties. In this way, Alumni Freiburg e.V. works to promote junior researchers and establish a close bond between the University of Freiburg and its former students.

Other university projects, such as the renovation of the Peterhofkeller, the expansion of the Uniseum, and the establishment of the Student Service Center have also received funding from Alumni Freiburg.

As a non-profit registered organization, Alumni Freiburg is an independent establishment with over 2,000 members. On the organizational level, the association is connected to the Alumni Office and the Public Relations Department. The organization offers alumni a wide range of events, continuing education programs, and contact persons.

„As a member of Alumni Freiburg e.V. you are helping to secure the future of Freiburg University and its students in the long term.“

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Jochen Schiewer
Rector of Freiburg University
