University of Sheffield in America (USA)

Sheffield in America banner

There are currently around 4,000 Sheffield alumni living in the United States. Many are expatriate British graduates, who went on to build their careers and lives in the States. Others are American citizens who came to study in Sheffield, either for their full degree or through our Study Abroad programme.

We set up the University of Sheffield in America, a U.S. registered charity, to help former students in the USA to stay connected with Sheffield, get connected with each other, and support their University.


Our Annual American Alumni Reunion took place on 4 May - read about it.

Please visit our Events Calendar to see upcoming reunions and social mixers in your area.


You can make a tax deductible donation in US$ to the American Alumni Fund. Since we began, US alumni and friends have given over $6 million for scholarships, student facilities and research.
