Join us at one of the many alumni events that take place throughout the year on campus, across the UK and internationally. They are a fantastic way to reconnect with old friends, expand your network of Sheffield alumni and find out what's been happening at the University recently.

Everywhere
Throughout the 30 days of June

This is our first ever virtual fundraising event, taking place throughout the 30 days of June, in support of Parkinson's disease research at the University. We are challenging you to do 30 'things' across the month - they could be the same things or 30 different activities. The choice is up to you.

Annual Alumni Reunion
On campus
Saturday 12 September 2020

Note: Given the current coronavirus situation we are unable to confirm this event will go ahead as planned. We very much hope to run the event as expected but a final decision will be taken closer to the time, informed by the latest on the situation.

Our flagship event for graduates of the University of Sheffield. Join us for a full day of campus tours and talks on some of our latest research. In the evening, you can enjoy dinner and dancing in Firth Hall before Pop Tarts Reunited rounds off the night. This event is open to all alumni, but may be of particular interest to alumni from the classes of 2000, 1995, 1990 and 1980 celebrating 20, 25, 30 and 40 years since graduation.
