magnifying1 Welcome

The Alumni Association exists to keep all former students of the University of Portsmouth (and its previous incarnations) in touch with the institution for life. We host regular events throughout the year, ranging from black tie dinners to drinks receptions and tours. We can keep you in touch with your old friends by helping you organise your reunions in Portsmouth.

Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, we want to hear from you so please keep in touch.
