Alumni events

There are also lectures, exhibitions, recitals and concerts at the University year-round which are open to alumni as well as students, staff and the local community. Please check the events calendar to see what’s on.

Organise a reunion

Reunions are a wonderful way to reconnect with former classmates and help you make new professional contacts. We can support you through the process of organising a reunion, whether it’s a small drinks reception or a whole weekend of activity.

  • Contact the Alumni Relations team to let us know your plans.
  • Decide on a date: we can confirm if the areas on campus you want to visit will be available.
  • Promote the event: let us know the details of the reunion and who you want to come, and we can invite relevant alumni and promote it on our website and social media.
  • Coverage in Higher: we love to hear about reunions, so send us a write-up and photos and we can feature it in Higher Online.

Please contact the Alumni Relations team or +44 (0)1784 414478 for more information.
