Find out about reunions for alumni from UWE and Bristol Polytechnic, or find out how we can help you to organise your own.
Organising a reunion
The Alumni Office can help you to organise a reunion or get-together of your class, subject, faculty or group of friends. We are happy to send out invitations on your behalf to those alumni for whom we have contact details, although due to the Data Protection Act 1998, we are unable to pass on any details directly to you.
We can also help with accommodation, venue, catering and entertainment as well as locating former lecturers and members of staff.
If you are interested in organising a reunion or would like to add your reunion to the notice board, please contact us.

Business Studies: Class of 1980-1984, Bristol Polytechnic Reunion
These Alumni are organising a large gather known as the 'Poly Dollys'. A name taken from a memorable cricket team produced by the Business Studies faculty of the time. They would like to include all those that knew them and still remember BABS 84.
The hunt for Alumni remains ongoing. Mini local reunions have been occurring as numbers have grown, and, while a date has yet to be set for the main gather, their hunt is organic and relies on a reunion community to share and search out what remains in their memory. To this end you can join a Private Forum specific to the Poly Dollys gather promised for 2013: Forum: http://tinyurl.com/polydollys Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
UWE Alumni Network London event
Thursday 3 October 2013, 18:00 - 21:30
This event was our first alumni reunion in London! The reunion gave alumni an opportunity to network with UWE and Bristol Poly graduates who live or work in London, current and former staff, as well as key industry contacts, notable and successful graduates, and University partners from a wide range of sectors.
Furthermore alumni had the chance to learn from the Vice-Chancellor about what UWE is doing now, as well as hearing from Vincent McKevitt, a successful, London based alumnus who owns a healthy food chain company called 'Tossed'. They also heard from inspiring UWE graduate Hannah Lawton who will be soon embarking upon the gruelling challenge of rowing across the atlantic! The event was held in the central, prestiguous venue 'The Royal Society of Medicine', which is not usually open to the public.
