Host your own event

The Alumni Events Team are happy to help you organise online or face-to-face events to reconnect with friends and classmates, or meet other alumni in your area.

We have designed the following resources to support you when planning to host your own event.

Reunion-in-a-box-webReunion in a Box

Reunion in a Box is a free resource to support you in reconnecting with university pals, classmates, or Sports Club or Society members. Each box includes links to music playlists so you can enjoy the sounds of your studies at your event, alongside nostalgic University of Birmingham memorabilia in the form of an exclusive alumni reunion magnet, Old Joe beer mats, and games and quizzes!

Reunion in a Box can be used wherever you are based around the globe, whether you’re planning a small meet-up at a local pub or want to plan a visit to our Edgbaston campus.

Request your Reunion in a Box and find more resources to support your Reunion.

You can also check the list of upcoming reunions already being planned by our alumni for classmates, year groups, friends, societies and sports teams. Make sure to let the Events Team know if you are running a reunion you would like to promote.

Alumni gatherings collageGlobal Alumni Gatherings

To commemorate the anniversary of the University of Birmingham receiving Royal Assent in 1900, Birmingham alumni across the Globe get together on or around 25 May to celebrate their connection with the University. These social events are a great way to connect with like-minded alumi. Take a look at celebrations from last year with the 2023 Global Alumni Gatherings.

You can check the Global Alumni Gathering list for upcoming events being planned by your fellow alumni. Want to get involved but there isn't an event in your area? Why not be an organiser! We're looking for alumni who want to bring together their local alumni community in 2024. These events can be in-person or online, formal or informal. You can find out more about Global Alumni Gatherings, including an extensive list of resources to help you in planning your event.

Let us know if you'd like to be involved in a 2024 Global Alumni Gathering by emailing the Alumni Events team.

Don't want to wait until May 2024 to connect with alumni? Let the Alumni Events team know via email and we are happy to support you with advice or by promoting your event.
