Currently, about 100 companies and institutions of all sizes as well as approx. 200 private individuals are members of the friends. They benefit from having access to the President's Office, to professors, the knowledge culture of the university as well as from regular information and invitations. The Friends of the University of Mannheim are the gateway to the University of Mannheim.
