Alumni and Friends

Alumni and friends groups

With over 145,000 alumni, the University of Kent is represented by our former students all over the world. At present, we have formal alumni associations in the USA, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, plus a recently established alumni committee in Nigeria.

We also have a Former Staff Association, helping to maintain links between the University and its former members of staff, plus a number of 'class groups' such as our First 500 (Kent's first cohort of undergraduates in 1965) and other year groups who meet regularly and stay in close touch with the University.

Your online community

All Kent alumni are able to gain access to our online community where you'll find an alumni directory, allowing you to look up friends you've lost touch with, or find out what your old classmates are doing now. Register today and see who you can find!
