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.

2019 saw gatherings in cities across the globe, including San Francisco, Nairobi, Shanghai and Georgetown in Guyana, and the events ranged from city tours to quizzes, beach parties to 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 merchandise and goodies to attendees.
