Become a Friend
The financial support of our more than 13,000 Friends and donors is indispensable. Thanks to our Friends and donors, we are able to provide grants and prizes to researchers and students. Moreover, these friendships enable us to continue to build a thriving university community of which alumni are an integral part.
As a Friend you support the Utrecht University Fund with an annual contribution of 30 euros.
As a Friend you will receive the Friends Pass. With this card you can, among other things:
- make free use of the library collections and all generally accessible facilities in the library;
- get free access to the University Library and the Utrecht Botanic Gardens;
- make use of OHRA's collectivity insurance for both car and health insurance;
- receive a discount on membership of the Faculty Club.
Because of corona and working from home, the Friends passes cannot be sent for the time being. As soon as the possibility exists, the passes will be sent out. If you want proof of registration to receive discounts or benefits, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual contribution payment
The minimum contribution for Friends is 30 euros per year. In addition, you can make an extra donation at the end of your Friendship. We are always happy to receive an additional contribution since this will enable us to do even more for students and a flourishing academic climate in Utrecht.
Through the website uu-alumni.nl/friend you authorize us to debit your chosen amount from your account once a year. As soon as you become a Friend, we will debit this amount from your account within two months after your registration. From that moment on, your Friendship runs per calendar year. For student friends, the Student Friendship runs per academic year.
You can no longer choose to transfer your contribution yourself.
