The Federal Association of Liberal Students Groups (German: Bundesverband Liberaler Hochschulgruppen; short: LHG) is a student association in the Federal Republic of Germany supporting liberal political issues.

The LHG was founded in 1987, by a combination of 40 student groups, as a successor association of several liberal student associations, including the center-left Social Liberal Student Association (SLH), the Young Liberals Student Association (JuLi-Hochschulgruppen), and the Liberal Students' Initiative (LSI).[citation needed]

The LHG is the first comprehensive federal association of liberal students in Germany since the breakup of the Liberal Students' Alliance (LSD), once associated with the FDP in 1969.[citation needed]

The LHG is a full member of the European Liberal Youth (LYMEC), which itself is tied to the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party in the European Union.[1]

Consisting of currently 65 member groups, LHG is one of the largest German student association.[citation needed] Since its Mönchengladbach convention in January 2016, the federal chairman has been Johannes Dallheimer. [2]
