A lively and enriching university life requires additional dedication.

“As a university, we are delighted to have dedicated people who support us and the work of our students and scientists as well as our diverse cultural offerings. Only in this way can an enriching university life be promoted, innovative ideas implemented and support provided. Every single contribution helps! The Freundeskreis der Technischen Universität Kaiserslautern e. V. (Friends of the TU Kaiserslautern association) has been dedicated to the university and its members since 1969 and plays a decisive role in strengthening the relationships between business, university and residents in Kaiserslautern and the region.”
