If you'd like to organise a reunion for your friends/halls/course/club or year group, please contact the alumni office. We can check to see how many of your group we are in contact with, and give advice on venues, mailing lists, and accommodation.

If you've got an idea for a reunion let us know and we'll try to help. In our experience, finding everyone's contact details is the hardest part, so if it has been a while since you all last saw each other, try to organise the event with plenty of notice!
