Join the Alumni Network

UQ is very keen to connect with our friends and alumni living in the USA and Canada. Below are a few ways you can connect with both UQ and others through networking opportunities.

Alumni Groups

UQ is in the process of establishing alumni groups throughout North America. UQ graduates, study abroad students and exchange students are all welcome to join these groups. UQ plans to establish alumni groups in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Washington DC and Boston.

Benefits of joining an alumni group include:

  • Reconnect with UQ and your fellow alumni
  • Find out about the latest UQ research and campus happenings
  • Assist us in showcasing the achievements of local alumni
  • Help raise the profile of UQ among student, research and business communities in North America
  • Welcome alumni returning or relocating to your city

To register your interest in engaging with UQ and other alumni in your city/region, please click here or complete the form below. To learn more about alumni groups in your area or to volunteer to assist in establishing an alumni group, please email UQ’s Manager of Alumni Programs, Daniel Brennan, at d.brennan@uq.edu.au for more information.


Connect Online

UQ North America has established a group on LinkedIn where UQ alumni and friends can reconnect, share job and career opportunities, and network with each other. We would invite you to join this online community. In addition, UQ has groups on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.

You can also subscribe to our quarterly UQ North America e-newsletter to stay informed about activities, events and updates from the UQ office in Washington, DC, and the broader UQ community.

Alumni Benefits

Being alum has its advantages! As an alumnus of The University of Queensland you can enjoy the benefits of being part of the UQ community long after you graduate. You are also a member of our UQ family if you spent with us a semester as a Study Abroad student or was a part of a Student Exchange program. Unique deals and discounts are just part of the benefit of being UQ alumni, and our list is always expanding, so make sure you check back regularly to see what’s on offer for you.
