Reunions are a fantastic way to reconnect with old friends from your time at Glasgow. 

It’s easier than you might think to organise a reunion and the Alumni Engagement Team can provide all the support you need.

We’re in contact with UofG graduates worldwide and can help to put you in touch with one another.

Check below to see if there is an upcoming reunion for your class. If not, why not organise your own?

Class of 1960 - 1969


Peter Ratzer, who graduated in Hons. Pol. Econ. with Politics in 1961, is organising a reunion of Honours Pol. Econ. graduates from the three years 1960-62.

Richard Naftalin is planning a 1962 MBChB reunion in Glasgow on 17th and 18th September 2020. Plans would be to stay at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel or the Hilton Grosvenor Terrace. The proposal is to meet for dinner on Thursday 17th and have a day's excursion on Friday 18th, perhaps to Dunoon.

Dr Helen Mactier (Galloway) is coordinating with others a 40 year reunion in the autumn of 2021, if COVID-19 restrictions are eased. There will be a dinner dance, probably in Glasgow, and a variety of other activities to fill a weekend.

The proposal would likely include an informal drinks reception on the Friday night somewhere in Glasgow and on the Saturday a tour of Glasgow University, possibly a lecture on campus (for fun), and then a formal dinner and time to mingle afterwards.

Club, Society and School Reunions


It is with regret that the annual Vet Reunion Dinner did not go ahead in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand this was disappointing news to receive. We hope to be able to 'double up' this year and have one heck of a hooley – assuming some normality has returned to our lives! We will update you on arrangements in Summer 2021 – so watch this space for further details.
