Organising a reunion

What is university if not the place where we make friends for life? We're here to help you keep connected (or reconnect!) with alumni across the UK and beyond.

Whether you just need some advice on the current Nottingham hotspots for getting friends together or want to organise something more formal on campus we're here to help.

A few things to consider:

Why are you organising the event?

What is the reason for getting people together? Are you celebrating a graduation anniversary, do you want to revisit old haunts on campus or simply want to reconnect with your classmates? The reason usually shapes the theme of the event. 

When do you plan on hosting the event?

Choosing the right date and time is important. Events during public holidays and in the week can sometimes be troublesome as guests may have other plans.    

Where would you like the event to take place?

Will the event be in the UK, overseas, on campus or in your back garden? Wherever it is going to be held, we'd love to hear about it and give you the support you need.

Who would you like to attend the event? 

Are you in touch with your proposed guests or would you like our support to make contact with a specific group? It's up to you who you'd like to invite – whether it's old classmates, neighbours from halls or friends who started in the same year!

How we can support you

Our Alumni Engagement team is available to help you through the process. We can provide support by:  

  • Putting you in touch with the University Conferences team, which will help you to plan the event logistics for on-campus reunions. They will provide support with venue hire and catering.
  • Sending out your event invitations to guests via email or on social media, if appropriate

To get in touch with the team please email – we look forward to hearing from you!
