About the Uppsala University Alumni Network
As a former student or staff member of Uppsala University, you are part of our global alumni community. The Uppsala University Alumni Network is our way of staying in touch with our alumni once they leave the University.
Membership of the Alumni Network is free and inclusive. Everyone who has studied or worked, or is working, at Uppsala University, is welcome to register. No matter how short a time you studied or worked here. We also regard our honorary doctors, visiting researchers, board members and others close to the University as alumni. By becoming a member and providing us with your current contact information, you ensure that we can contact you with invitations and offers. You will always be welcome on our campuses or at one of our many events all over the world.
The Uppsala University Alumni Network is growing. To date, over 25,000 alumni in nearly 130 countries around the world have chosen to become members. The network includes numerous alumni associations and alumni chapters that offer their members professional networking opportunities, lectures and speaker events, Valborg celebrations, company visits and other activities. If there is no association or chapter that is convenient for you, we would be happy to help you arrange an alumni get-together, or to establish a new alumni group, in your hometown. Contact us to find out more.
Being a member not only allows you to benefit from the Alumni Network, it also gives you the opportunity to give back and contribute to your alma mater. Our alumni are our ambassadors and help us spread Uppsala University’s knowledge and values around the world. Many are active and committed members of alumni associations and chapters. Some help us design our degree programmes and courses, contribute as guest lecturers or help our students find internships and opportunities for degree projects. Others contribute financially to research, education or cultural projects at Uppsala University. One way or another, our alumni are all a tremendous and valued asset to the University.
