Reunions

Because we’re in contact with over 394,000 University of Manchester graduates worldwide, we can help you organise a reunion by putting you in touch with old friends.

Organise a reunion

We can find alumni by:

  • year of graduation;
  • subject of study;
  • country/location;
  • group/society;
  • hall of residence.

When you have decided who you would like to invite to your reunion, email alumni@manchester.ac.uk and we’ll send an initial letter or email to the group on your behalf to gauge the level of interest and ask them to reply directly to you.

Tips

Date

We recommend setting the date for your reunion at least six months in advance, or 12 months if you are inviting alumni from overseas.

Format

You may wish to consider if your reunion will be a formal or a casual gathering or a weekend full of events. Consider if the invitation is also open to family and friends.
