Every year, UEA alumni all over the world come together to celebrate their connection to the University by holding reunion events in the days and weeks around 29 September, UEA's birthday.
2020 was very different, with many gatherings held online due to the pandemic. Nontheless, gatherings were held in Beijing, Brighton, Palestine, Japan, Washington D.C., Guyana, Kenya and several other locations. Past events have included city tours, quizzes, beach parties and formal dinners.
The events are held in September and October and are alumni-led. The Alumni team offer support with guest lists, give advice on bookings and provide event resources. For 2021, it is expected that some events will still have to be held online, and any in-person events will have to adhere to relevant local and national restrictions on social gatherings. We are here to support both types of event - so get in contact if you want to host or attend an event near you!
