Services for Alumni

For most of you who spent time at Freie Universität – as students, lecturers, or researchers – Berlin means more than just the university campus. Indeed, some of your fondest memories may be of the city itself with its manifold attractions; of green, leafy Dahlem; or simply of the cafeteria where you used to meet your friends. Such memories are enjoyed best when shared, occasionally refreshed, and deepened. To provide a forum for trips down memory lane, several departments of Freie Universität organize regular alumni meetings. As of late, the university’s liaison office in Cairo serves as the first point of contact for all the university’s alumni in Egypt and other states of region.
