Events

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.

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, the University has temporarily put on hold all face-to-face events on campus and around the world. However, we don't want our alumni and supporters to miss out during this time, so we are exploring ways to engage virtually. Please continue visiting this page for further updates.  

Organise your own event

Want to get together with your old friends and classmates, but don't know where to start? We are here to help.
