The Hüfferstiftung accommodates the university management, the central administration and the Faculty of Social Studies of Münster University of Applied Sciences.
The Hüfferstiftung hearkens back to the initiative of Wilhelm Hüffer (1821-1895). The offspring of a family that had been resident in Münster for generations was the third son of the Lord Mayor and publisher Johann Hermann Hüffer (1784-1855).
Further information about the Hüfferstiftung can be found under 'The Orthopaedic Medical Institution Hüfferstiftung'.
In the scope of a history competition, the pupil Sabine Kobold carried out research into the historical facts and background of the notion behind Wilhelm Hüffer's foundation.
