Since May 2008, the Heidelberg University has a "Liaison Office" in the United States. The office is in Manhattan in the "German House" near the United Nations Headquarters. The German consulate-general, the German United Nations mission as well as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) are all in the same building.
The new office will offer Heidelberg alumni, students, academics and partners a place to assemble or seek contact with the Heidelberg University. In addition, the New York office will house the newly founded organization "Heidelberg University Association".
Professor Bernhard Eitel, the president (Rektor) of Heidelberg University, visited the new office during a festive Alumni gathering and grand opening in October 2008. For more information read the press release.
