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.

You are invited to St Matts campus to give it one final fantastic send-off. We can now confirm the date and some initial details, below, but there will be more info to follow soon.

Please book your place by ‘purchasing’ a FREE online ticket so we can begin to get an idea of numbers for catering and make sure you have all the info you need about the day.

The link can be found here: 

If you are not a current student you will need to click where it says “please login to add items to your basket”, then click “staff, alumni and guests” then “create a guest account”. It will ask you for your name and email address, after which you can login, select the ticket and then click the basket icon to “proceed to checkout” which will complete the process.

Past reunions and events

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.

Photos of this event can be seen via this flickr gallery.
