Please note

We do not charge any membership fees. The Alumni directory is a service from RUB to foster relationships between Alumni and the University.


The Ruhr-Universität was part of your life for years, helping to determine your career. You too, as a member of our community, have helped shape the university. For this reason we warmly invite you to remain in contact – both with us and with your companions from your time at the RUB. Anyone who has studied, taught or worked at the RUB can join the RUB Alumni.

Experience the RUB

We regularly invite our Alumni to events – ranging from exclusive tours of the catacombs and the particle accelerator labs to receptions at the KUBUS of Max Imdahl, Arts of Today (Situation Kunst) in Bochum-Weitmar. You can also receive news from us about the RUB and information on our events for Alumni. In this way you can keep up to date with campus life.

Maintain contacts and get involved

You can meet other former students and talk with teachers and current students. Get involved in our "Alumni for Students" projects and share your experiences of professional life with us.

There are a lot of exciting themes to discover at the RUB, so why not join in?
