Starting a Reading Alumni Group
The University of Reading is proud of the many ways in which its alumni can stay connected to the University and each other. Our volunteer-led alumni groups work closely with the Alumni and Supporter Engagement Office to foster and enhance the University’s global alumni community. Alumni groups are made up of an invaluable network of ambassadors and supporters that represent the University on an international scale.
Each group has an organising committee made up of alumni volunteers who act as ambassadors of the University. Groups tend to meet a few times throughout the year to plan upcoming activity. Alumni groups hold social meetings as well as working in partnership with the Alumni and Supporter Engagement Office to organise support for student recruitment and professional networking events.
Benefits of being involved
Being involved in an alumni group will help you stay connected to the University and you’ll be able to shape local alumni activity whilst giving back by sharing your experience, knowledge and expertise. It can also be good fun socially, helping you to stay in touch with friends and meet fellow alumni who share a common bond.
How to get involved
We currently have alumni groups in the following areas:
- China (Beijing and Shanghai)
- Hong Kong
- USA (New York)

If you are interested in starting a new group, we'll let you know how many alumni live in your area and if there is a good number, we can help you recruit other volunteers.
