Planning a reunion

College Lane green

Do you ever wonder what happened to your fellow classmates after graduation?

Why reunite?

Planning to reunite with your former classmates and tutors can seem like a daunting task, with so many people to contact or track down, and lots to prepare for.

However, help is at hand - we are happy to offer tips and advice to make the process as easy as possible.

Advice and support

If you are interested in organising a reunion, we would recommend that you begin planning well in advance. It can take time to arrange something that is going to suit everyone, so the more time you give yourself to put an event together, the better.

Other things to think about when planning a reunion:


Make sure that the dates you choose aren't going to clash with any local or national holidays; sensitivity is often required to ensure that there is also no conflict with religious or cultural days of celebration or observance.


The time your event takes place can vary. If it is a weekday event, it is worth ensuring that attendees have enough time to arrive after work.


We would recommend that you choose a venue that is centrally located with good transport links and parking facilities. Also, try to make your event as affordable as possible to ensure a good turnout. Visit your venue beforehand to check it has everything you need, e.g. wheelchair access. Please remember that many venues, including the Forum, will require you to bring ID.


We can assist with publicity by putting information on the alumni website, in Futures magazine and in the e-futures newsletter. Social networking sites, such as Facebook, are also particularly useful.


Due to data protection, we cannot give alumni information directly to you. However, if we have advance notice, we can send out an invitation letter or email on your behalf, but we will need to administer all correspondence.


If you visit during the Summer holidays there could be limited accommodation available on Campus in student rooms. However, there are numerous hotels within a short distance of Campus to suit all budgets and their details are below.
