Join a global network

Being a member of Leeds alumni means you can talk to alumni across the world – there are 300,000 of us, after all. There are countless ways to connect with fellow Leeds alumni wherever you, or they, might be.

  • Digital and in-person events give you an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow alumni whilst enjoying inspiring talks or friendly social gatherings.
  • Organise reunions and reconnect with old friends from your course, a society, or your halls. We can help you find them!
  • Joining our network of volunteers allows you to make connections with and mentor new graduates and students at the start of their careers.
  • The Leeds Alumni Book Club connects our book-loving alumni – you can talk about books with other alumni wherever you are in the world.
  • From LS2 to every corner of the world, so many of our Leeds alumni have a story to tell. Explore their journeys with our alumni spotlight or through our My Leeds Story podcast series.
