The biggest University of Tartu alumni get-together

18 May 2019 

We are inviting you to the biggest University of Tartu alumni get-together! 
In 2019, the 386-year-old University of Tartu celebrates the centenary of the Estonian-language university. To mark this event, we will organise the biggest ever alumni convention, which focuses on people of the University of Tartu: you and your fellow graduates. 
As a part of the programme, we are also trying to set the Guinness World Record as the world's largest alumni event. The presence of every alumnus of the University of Tartu counts!

Dear alumnus of the University of Tartu!


Spring in Tartu – these words carry the spirit and vitality of our students. It is something you won’t forget even when decades have passed since your student years. This is why I invite you to Tartu this spring, on 18 May. Let’s show at the alumni meeting of the 100-year-old Estonian national university how strong and loyal the graduates of the University of Tartu are. Let’s make it the biggest alumni get-together in the world!

On the alumni day you will be able to revisit your unforgettable student days at lectures, tours of the academic buildings, exhibitions, cinema and, of course, doing sports and having fun at the party.


Our graduates are our treasure – the ambassadors of the university all over the world. To mark the 100th anniversary of the Estonian national university, we organise a brainstorming session for our alumni and the people of Tartu. Come and share your experience and have a say in the future of the Estonian society.


I also invite you to join the alumni network of the University of Tartu. This is where you will find your coursemates and the best friends of your student years.


Let's get together!

Toomas Asser

Rector of the University of Tartu
