The alumni network of Freie Universität Berlin keeps alumni in contact with their alma mater. Members receive regular information on new developments in science and academia, research, and everyday goings-on at the university, receive invitations to events, and enjoy special discounts. The Freie Universität Berlin group on LinkedIn lets alumni find former classmates and keep up business contacts with other Freie Universität alumni.
Alumni who live in other countries receive the international newsletter of Freie Universität several times each year. This newsletter is published in English and reports on current events and news from around the university. The seven liaison offices of Freie Universität Berlin – in Beijing, Brussels, Cairo, Moscow, New Delhi, New York, and São Paulo – organize local alumni events and keep alumni in their areas abreast of news regarding Freie Universität.
International scholars, scientists, and researchers who have been at Freie Universität as guests are targeted specifically through the Researcher Alumni Program, which received awards from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2012 and again in 2014.
