Did you live at UniCol?

If so, University College is celebrating its 50th birthday, Fri 22  Sun 24 November 2019, and you’re invited!

Register for the 50th Anniversary Reunion

The reunion weekend will be very entertaining. You are welcome to stay in a UniCol room – possibly even the room that was yours in student days! Accommodation at hotels within a few minutes’ walk is also being reserved.

Book a room at UniCol
Note: Choose "University College 50th Anniversary 22-24 November" from the event name drop-down box when booking.

In UniCol’s (in)famous social style, the programme will entertain everyone. There’s a smorgasbord of social events to select from – come to everything, or to just the events which tickle your fancy.

Your next steps

Please help us

If you or your friends went to UniCol, please tell us!

Email to tell us when you or your friends went to Unicol.

We’ll record on the database that you went to UniCol and then you’ll receive all future invitations to UniCol celebrations. Prior to the late 1990s, the University didn’t record on its database who attended its Halls (now called Colleges). So not everyone will receive email invitations. We need ex-residents to help us spread the word!
