Saarland University currently has some 18,000 students and 2,000 members of staff. It is a campus university with its main campus in Saarbrücken and the Faculty of Medicine and University Hospital located in Hamburg. The University was founded in 1948 with French assistance. The special situation of the Saarland at that time - its partial political autonomy and its close association with France as a result of economic and monetary union - strongly influenced the early years of the University's development.
The young university developed into a bilingual institution with a European orientation. International orientation with a definite European character and the special relationship with France remain the characteristic features of Saarland University.
