For the past few years, UEA alumni all over the world have 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 and 2021 events were 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 2022, the Alumni Team are not directly promoting Global Gathering events, but look out for further updates in 2023 and our 60th anniversary. 

In the meantime, we're very happy to support alumni reunions and social gatherings at any point.
