The Alumni Association exists to keep all former students of the University of Portsmouth (and its previous incarnations) in touch with the institution for life. We host regular events throughout the year, ranging from black tie dinners to drinks receptions and tours. We can keep you in touch with your old friends by helping you organise your reunions in Portsmouth.

Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, we want to hear from you so please keep in touch.

Get involved

We love to welcome alumni back to the University to inspire the next generation and get involved in University-wide activities. There are a number of ways for you to get involved, whether it’s returning to the University to talk to current and prospective students or by signing up to our e-networking and e-mentoring platform, Portsmouth LinkUP.


Portsmouth LinkUP

We've now launched the University of Portsmouth's new alumni platform, Portsmouth LinkUP, which allows you to e-mentor, e-network and connect with alumni across the world working in a number of different industries.


Volunteering Opportunities

There are plenty of volunteering roles to get involved with at the University including Open Days and industry talks, giving you the opportunity to learn new skills, network, help a current student and more.

Replacement certificates are obtainable from the University should your original certificate be lost or damaged. The cost of a replacement certificate is £35.00 which includes VAT, postage and packing. The certificates are printed on high quality watermarked parchment and are signed by the Vice-Chancellor. Replacement certificates can be obtained from the Student Results Service in the Department of Student and Academic Administration.
