For nearly 150 years, the rooms of the Old University served as the central administrative offices of the “Albertina” and are still used today by some university research institutes. The ground floor is home to the Uniseum, the university’s combined museum and conference center. Here, the university merges past with present, the Uniseum offering an exhibition of the University of Freiburg’s 550-year history as well as serving as a meeting place for students and teachers attending lectures and seminars, and a special events venue.
The museum exhibition takes a close look at the university's research work and teaching from its foundation in 1457 up to the present day. For example, did you know that it was not until 1900 that women were first admitted to universities in Germany? Or that ten Nobel laureates either taught or studied at the “Albertina”?
