Let us therefore rejoice, 

While we are young; 

After our youth, 

After a troublesome old age 

The ground will hold us. 

 

Long live the university, 

Long live the teachers, 

Long live each male student, 

Long live each female student; 

May they always flourish! 

 

Long live the state 

And those who rule it. 

Long live our city, 

And the charity of benefactors 

Which protects us here 


Gaudeamus igitur, 

iuvenes dum sumus! 

Post iucundam iuventutem, 

post molestam senectutem 

nos habebit humus. 

 

Vivat academia! 

Vivant professores! 

Vivat membrum quodlibet! 

Vivant membra quaelibet! 

Semper sint in flore! 

 

Vivat et respublica 

et qui illam regunt! 

Vivat nostra civitas, 

Maecenatum caritas, 

Quae nos hic protegunt.
