UCD Alumni Relations

We’re Here For You

The UCD Alumni Office looks forward to connecting with you, whether on campus, by phone or email, or when we travel to overseas locations


The team at UCD Alumni Office is here to help you stay connected to the growing UCD alumni community of more than 300,000 graduates who live and work in 189 countries around the globe. So, the UCD community is always close at hand – online or in person – anytime, anywhere. And there are lots of ways to get in touch. If you haven’t already signed up, you can include your profile on the online UCD Alumni Network, perhaps you’d like to attend one of our alumni events on campus or join a UCD Chapter overseas, or just drop in and see us. We always love to catch up! Many visiting alumni come to re-live memories of student days – visit old haunts, have a coffee in the University Club or simply enjoy the beauty of our exciting, expanding campus. Connect with us by phone on 01 716 1447, or by email at alumni@ucd.ie.


Our collection of alumni benefits allows you to unlock exclusive discounts. Explore the range of benefits available to you including discounts on and off campus and a range of online resources. We are happy to support UCD alumni-owned and operated businesses – take a look at what’s available on our website. www.ucd.ie/alumni/benefits


Our Alumni Relations team gathers alumni news, views and insights that will keep your curiosity about your fellow alumni alive. In UCD Connections alumni magazine we bring you updates on the life-changing academic and translational research that is happening at UCD; spinout companies from NovaUCD; alumni in the news and much more. On our website www.ucd.ie/alumni our online Q&Alumni interview series features alumni from all over the world. Talk to us today about how you might like to get involved, build your profile and connect with classmates.


Every gift to UCD makes a difference. Last year alone, alumni support provided vital funding for 152 incoming students in need, but with increasing demand for financial aid, a cost-of-living crisis and a new academic year approaching, we need your help today more than ever before. The Annual Giving team can assist you with information about the opportunities to support scholarships, student supports, mental health services, or a project close to your heart. By donating today, you can make an impact on the cause that inspires you the most. Connect with us by phone on 01 716 1406 or by email at info@ucdfoundation.ie.


We are constantly inspired by our extraordinary group of over 6,000 UCD alumni volunteers who have played a strong and significant role in supporting our students, each other and the University community over the years. Alumni give back in so many ways via our alumni volunteer programmes – helping to improve our students’ employability by acting as mentors, speaking on career panels or offering internships. They also support student recruitment by offering testimonials and giving guidance to school-goers all over the world who are considering coming to UCD; welcoming international students as they settle into life in Dublin on the buddy programme; offering strategic advice on boards and committees; and reconnecting our alumni community in multiple ways with our global chapters, at the UCD Festival and at other alumni events, including at those all-important class reunions. You are invited to join this network of alumni volunteers! Give some of your time and talent to make a difference here on campus and close to home, both online and in person. If you would like to get involved or have any questions, please get in touch by emailing alumnivolunteer@ucd.ie.


Alumni events happen near you and online. Connect, learn and engage with fellow alums during events on campus, virtually and around the world hosted by our UCD Global Chapters. And, if you are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or even 60 years out of UCD, and contemplating organising or attending a class reunion, please do reach out to us to see how we can help you get the most out of your reunion. If you’re looking for events from your School or College – check out the School and College pages on the UCD website to find out more or check out the playbacks on our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/UCDAlumni1
