About Alumni Freiburg

KG1 - Banner 1

In 1997, the University of Freiburg was the first university in Germany to start establishing contact with its former students. Exchanges with alumni gave the university important insights into its graduates’ professional lives, while extensive opportunities for continuing academic education were created for alumni at the university. Students benefit from contact with professionals, e.g. through mentoring.
Former students receive all important information about their university via Alumni Freiburg. Alumni meetings are an opportunity to revisit the university and earlier friendships made there. Some 80,000 alumni worldwide are now in contact with the University of Freiburg.

Alumni clubs: personal contact

The university maintains contact with its former students in many regions across Germany and on various continents through the alumni club network. The clubs regularly invite alumni of the University of Freiburg to academic and cultural events and offer good networking opportunities.
The clubs also keep alumni up-to-date on continuing education activities to help them advance their careers. Whether you are looking for symposiums, academic forums or to find academic experts – Alumni Freiburg gives you exclusive access to all academic and research disciplines.

Participation in academic and research pursuits

The alumni network gives alumni an opportunity to participate again in academic and research pursuits through regular events. This is of particular benefit to alumni in the professional sphere.


Alumni can also make an important social contribution by aiding projects supported by the university. Their financial contribution, e.g. through donations, endowments or the ideal support through membership of the Alumni Freiburg e.V. non-profit association, helps improve the study conditions in all faculties and represents an investment in the training of future generations.

Student search

Would you like to track down former university friends? Alumni Freiburg can make this happen. Many “missing” students have been found since the Alumni Freiburg came into existence and many friendships from time spent studying at the University of Freiburg rekindled.

With your help: Humanitarian Responses to the War in Ukraine - Monday, December 19, 2022, 9.00 PT, 12.00 ET, 17.00 London, 18.00 MEZ

Join the virtual meeting

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine generated a broad international response as countries such as Germany and the United States mustered diplomatic and economic support for Ukraine. But how have NGOs responded to the needs of refugees and Ukrainians on the ground? And how has the University of Freiburg responded to the needs of its Ukrainian students and researchers? Join our discussion with Ambassador (retired) Dr. Christine Althauser, Förderverein Alumni Freiburg e.V. and Alice Greider, World Jewish Relief (London). They will discuss how the needs of Ukrainian refugees are being addressed, and how Freiburg friends and alumni can support students at the university today.
