Alumni Reunion Weekend 2022

From 20 to 22 May, join us for our Alumni Reunion Weekend, open to all graduation years.

It's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and reminisce about your time at Loughborough, whilst also discovering everything that may have changed since your graduation.

Does your ideal reunion consist of a formal dinner and a campus tour, or FND and a casual dinner with friends? Whatever you are looking for, we have designed the reunion weekend with choice in mind, so you are free to tailor the weekend to your preferences.

Some events will have a cost to attend, so the total price will depend on your choices. If you're not sure what to choose, we've put together a few suggested package ideas below to get you started! 

With family-friendly activities including street food for lunch, why not bring the family along too?

Please note, bookings close on 8 May 2022.
