Album: Reunions, old friends, happy memories

It has been a great pleasure to welcome so many groups of alumni back to campus in recent months. With the City of Culture a huge draw, and with many groups who studied in the 1960s thinking of their 50th anniversary reunion (whether of the year they started or the year they finished) there have been lots of alumni interested in coming back to the University to relive old memories and to discover what the University is like today.

If you are planning on coming back to campus please do let us know by contacting and we would be delighted to give you a tour of the campus and give you some ideas for things to do in the city.


We’re happy to tailor the tour to meet the needs and interests of visiting groups. Most tours take in key recent developments such as Middleton Hall, Canham Turner, the Health Campus and the magnificent view from the 7th floor of the Brynmor Jones Library, and where possible we’ll be able to take you to see your old academic department. With certain groups we’ve also been able to arrange exclusive viewings of the Astrophysics Department, the Hull Immersive Visual Experience (HIVE), and the University Sports Hall.

In addition, if you have photographs or memories of your time as a student, please do share them with us, as we would like to build an archive of memories showing the University throughout its 90 year history.
