Facebook, Twitter & Co: The University of Erfurt in the social networks

[Translate to English:] Social Media

A university is a multifaceted institution, which is why we would like to give you exciting, clever, important, entertaining and sometimes surprising insights into our teaching, research and everyday life at the university.

In addition to our website, we also run blogs that focus on topics related to studies and science. The University of Erfurt is also represented in various social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and XING. We appreciate the possibilities of modern platforms and look forward to the dialogue with you. Follow us and stay informed!

Facebook pages

The University of Erfurt is represented with various Facebook accounts – both centralised and decentralised. We are pleased about the possibilities of communicating with you and informing you there, but we are also aware that Facebook collects personal data of its users and visitors to the site and therefore point this out again separately in our data protection information.

Privacy policy

The University of Erfurt does not use social media plug-ins on its website (www.uni-erfurt.de). Nevertheless, we would like to point out that providers such as Facebook already collect personal data when you call up the site, e.g. by clicking on links, which can be used technically to build up a personal profile. It is irrelevant whether you are a member of the social network and logged in.

The University of Erfurt has no influence on the collection of data. Please note the data protection information of the respective providers.


We look forward to sharing and discussing our news and stories with you. Please understand, however, that we may delete discriminating, promotional or advertising contributions or contributions that are inappropriate in form or content without comment.

Would you like to use our platforms to reach our students and staff? Please contact us in advance. We will try to find solutions. But we also aim to entertain our "fans and followers" and do not see our platforms as advertising space. We therefore ask for your understanding if we have to decline your request.
